West Brom get two apologies for penalties

6:55 am on 23 November 2013

The English Premier League football club West Bromwich Albion have received two apologies involving penalty decisions which they claim have cost them five championship points in the last month.

Mike Riley, head of the Professional Game Match Officials Board has called West Brom to apologise for a stoppage time penalty which allowed Chelsea to escape with a draw earlier this month, and the club also received an apology from leading referee Howard Webb after he failed to give them a penalty in a scoreless draw at Stoke City last month.

West Brom's manager Steve Clarke said the club wrote to the Premier League about the two decisions to try and provoke discussions.

The club is currently 10th on the table.
