Furious Hughes calls for video replays

Mark Hughes believes video replays should be introduced as a matter of priority in the Premiership.

The Blackburn manager is demanding a meeting with referees' chief Keith Hackett following the controversial 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Ewood Park.

Hughes and his opposite number Martin Jol were both highly critical of the match officials, led by referee Phil Dowd.

'I have never been an advocate of technology. But when huge decisions at the top level have an impact on teams, management and players then something has to be done,' said the Blackburn boss.

'There are clear breaks in play whenever there is a penalty claim or a goal is scored.

'In that short period of time it can be established very quickly whether it was a genuine penalty kick or a genuine goal.

'Sooner rather than later they should bring it in, and I think it will happen.'

Blackburn took the lead thanks to a superb 25-yard volley from Tugay. But the former Turkey playmaker was later red-carded after being adjudged to have brought down Hossam Ghaly.

Jermain Defoe equalised from the penalty spot, and Ghaly was dismissed later for appearing to elbow Michael Gray.

Jol was then told to 'stand away' from the touchline, after questioning the decision.

He initially intended to appeal against what he thought was a dismissal - but a Premier League spokesman later made it clear Dowd had not sent the manager off.

That does not alter Jol's irritation about Ghaly's red card.

'I know Hossam, and he never used his elbow. He misjudged it. It was never intentional,' said the Spurs boss.

'The referee reacted to the crowd, who were crying out for a red card.

'I told him [the referee] he was totally wrong. He was a bit emotional.

'I was not abusive to him - afterwards maybe.'

Hughes was livid at the seventh penalty awarded against his side this season. He will appeal against Tugay's red card, as well as demanding a meeting with Hackett.

'It is important we highlight these things to the powers-that-be,' he said.

'Performance level is what we are all about - players, management and referees.

'Their performance has to be of the required standard.

'I do not think Mr Dowd would have been proud of his performance.

'Tugay did not make any contact. The guy lost his footing and has gone over. The referee is in a decent position to make a decision himself.

'We asked to speak to his assistant because we think he is going to overrule him.

'He comes back and ends up sending him off. We are scratching our heads.'

Hughes felt Rovers should have had a penalty when Mido appeared to handle in the area, after Defoe's equaliser.

'The assistant is 15 yards away, and I am 120 yards away. I saw it, and everyone else did,' said the Blackburn boss.

'These are big decisions that have a direct effect on the outcome of the game. On too many occasions this season, it has it happened to us.'
