Bent admitted diving, says Dudek
Charlton striker Darren Bent slots home from the penalty spot against Liverpool
Dudek was furious after Bent scored from the spot at The Valley
Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek says Charlton striker Darren Bent admitted diving after winning a penalty during their Premiership game on Wednesday.

The penalty was converted for Charlton's first goal in the London side's 2-0 win at The Valley.

"Bent was, I think, one yard ahead of me. He dived, you know," said Dudek.

"When he was on the floor he was saying 'sorry, I dived, I did dive'. He was scared of getting booked. But when the ref said 'penalty' he said nothing."

Dudek added: "I said 'tell him. Tell him you dived'. The referee insisted it was a penalty.

"He said I had touched him. How could I have touched him when he was one yard in front of me?

"Maybe it's time for video technology if it will stop people diving.

"If you have a situation where teams miss out on European football it could cost them millions of pounds, and all because of an incorrect decision."

Dudek was making his first start for Liverpool since the Champions League final against AC Milan in May 2005.
