West Brom boss Tony Mowbray was, shall we say, slightly upset after his men were held to a 1-1 draw against the Owls – and has promptly been reported to the FA.

Former Baggie Steve Watson snatched a late, late leveller for Wednesday at the Hawthorns on Tuesday night, which prompted the Albion boss to launch a tirade at referee Nigel Miller.

Mowbray pointed towards a foul on one of his players in the lead up to the Owls’ goal, and more added time than was shown by the fourth official, as as ‘gross injustice’.

And he revealed that his conversation with referee Miller following the match could land him in hot water after the official said he would be reporting the conversation to the FA.

Mowbray said: ‘Where do you start. I’ve got to be careful, he (the referee) has already told me he’ll be reporting the conversation – I think an injustice has been done.

‘For me it’s a blatant foul and the fourth official is telling me that time is finished.

‘It was over by three minutes when we got a goal-kick. Our game has got the best referees in the world but tonight is very hard to take, there were some strange decisions.’

But although the former Middlesbrough legend was fuming at the scenario, he praised the Owls for going to the Hawthorns and having a go at his team.

‘Let’s not detract from the performance of the team, which I felt was first class against a decent side,’ he added.

‘Sheffield Wednesday are a good team, they came and had a go and were a real threat, but I felt, second half, the chances we created with the pressure we built up, that’s why its hard to take when that’s taken away from us at the end – we richly deserved three points.’
