Hull boss backs refs after controversial weekend

Hull City manager Phil Brown has defended referees after officials were criticised in several high-profile mistakes at the weekend.

Penalties for Manchester United and Wigan and a red card for Everton's Tim Cahill have all come under scrutiny.

Bolton and Manchester City managers Gary Megson and Mark Hughes - whose teams were both on the receiving end of dubious penalty decisions - both called for the introduction of television replays.

However, although Brown can sympathise with his counterparts he does not think video replays are the way forward.

''If we highlight the Cahill incident, that was definitely not a red card but there were two or three on Saturday that were right,'' he said.''But you can't take away the human element of the referee.''

The Hull boss, whose side sprang a surprise with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, is trying to keep his players' grounded with the newly-promoted club currently sixth in the Premier League.

''We were bottom of the Championship 18 months ago. We have won three games and that's probably two or three more than people expected us to win,'' Brown added on Radio 5 Live.

''We keep our feet on the ground but we are an ambitious group. To be a Premier League club is a fantastic achievement, to be one at the end of this season would also be a fantastic achievement. But there is a level of consistency required.''
