Rovers Defend Jacobson
Not that it makes any difference to Kieron Dyer but the Rovers' manager has defended Joe Jacobson's challenge on the West Ham midfielder.
After the game Curbishley said,
"The Bristol Rovers player should be very disappointed with that tackle as he lashed out after losing the ball and caught Kieron."
Paul Trollope however claims,
"That's the view of their camp - but nobody else seems to share it. From our point of view, it was a foul. He swung his leg back to try and win the ball and it was just an unfortunate outcome.
Stories from the other camp that it was a malicious challenge and he's gone to do him are wide of the mark."
The footage however demonstrates that Jacobson did lash out at Dyer.
