Bosses impressed by Massey

Rival managers Ian Holloway and Gerard Houllier applauded assistant referee Sian Massey for her performance at Bloomfield Road on Saturday.

Blackpool 1-1 Aston Villa

Massey returned to the Premier League for the first time since she was the subject of sexist remarks surrounding Liverpool's win at Wolves last month. Those comments led to Andy Gray and Richards Keys losing their jobs at Sky Sports in the wake of the scandal.

Massey ran the line during the 1-1 draw between Blackpool and Aston Villa with Howard Webb the referee.

Asked if she did all right, Blackpool boss Holloway said: "Absolutely."

Villa's Houllier added: "She took the right decisions. I was confident in her. She is good at what she is doing."

However Holloway was angered by supporters who taunted Massey.

He said : "I didn't like some of the shouts. Is that funny? 'There is only one Andy Gray'? That's rude, you have got to forget about all of that and get on with things, haven't we. I think we should let things lie in the past."
