Holloway Criticises Beattie For Diving

For all at the Liberty today, it looked as clear cut a penalty as you’d see all season but surprisingly the referee waved any appeals away.

Holloway agreed with the decision and went further by questioning why Craig Beattie wasn’t shown a yellow card for diving.

The draw sees Swansea drop down a place to 12th but Paulo Sousa’s men are still only four points off a play-off spot.

The Blackpool boss told the BBC: “We earned our point even though our keeper was the busier but if there was only one team going on to win then it probably was Swansea.

“Some of the decisions made by the referee were a bit finicky because this is a man’s game and there were too many free kicks given by a fussy referee.

“I can’t understand why Beattie wasn’t booked for falling down in the area because it certainly wasn’t a penalty.

“I was also disappointed that Swansea never gave us the ball back after we put it out of play when a player was injured.

“They will think they should have had three points while we are going away happy with one.”
