FA to investigate Jewell comments
Paul Jewell
Wigan remain in with a shout of European football next season
The Football Association will decide on Tuesday what action to take against Wigan boss Paul Jewell following his angry tirade against referee Phil Dowd.

Jewell labelled Dowd 'incompetent' after Monday's 1-1 draw at Blackburn.

The Latics boss was furious that Dowd did not penalise Rovers' Lucas Neill for a foul on keeper John Filan that led to Shefki Kuqi's equaliser late on.

"He (Dowd) genuinely gets things wrong. He doesn't do it on purpose, he is just not very good. He is just incompetent."

Jewell said of the equaliser: "Their goal at the end is not a foul, it's GBH.

"One Premier League manager told me Dowd is the worst referee we have got in this league - and he isn't wrong."

Despite being angered by the challenge that led to Rovers snatching a point at Ewood Park, Jewell was also annoyed that Arjan de Zeeuw had a first-half goal ruled out.

He said: "We were robbed in the first half and robbed at the end."

The FA will decide whether Jewell's comments compromise the integrity of Dowd.
