Man United 2-0 Crystal Palace: My opinion doesn't count - Ian Holloway

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway says his opinion "doesn't count" as he refuses to criticise the referee for awarding Manchester United a controversial penalty and sending off Kagisho Dikgacoi.

Dikgacoi's challenge on Ashley Young appeared to be outside the box, but referee Jon Moss pointed to the spot, before red-carding the Palace man. Robin van Persie converted the penalty and Wayne Rooney scored a free-kick to inflict a 2-0 defeat on Holloway's men.

The former Blackpool boss was watching from the stands as he is currently serving a two-match touchline ban for comments made about the match officials following Palace's opening day game against Tottenham.
