Webb Admits To Mistakes

Last updated : 14 January 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

The South Yorkshire official admitted that he had missed a clear-cut first half penalty when Marcus Bent was fouled in the box.

Webb also had a hand in Wolves' second goal when in the 51st minute he deflected Radhi Jaidi's crossfield pass to the opposition and with the Blues defence exposed Sam Vokes netted to kill-off the tie.

"I am disappointed to have an influence on a goal like that. It is probably the lowest point of my professional refereeing career," he said after the match at St Andrews.

"I am disappointed and it is not what you want to be a part of at all.

"It was difficult because the ball comes at you at pace and you think you are in the best position but then something like that happens and they break away and sod's law says they go and score from it.

"You want the world to swallow you up at that moment. I have spoken to the management of Birmingham City and they have been outstanding and accepted it and have shown no animosity at all.

"They dealt with it in an excellent way but I was almost more disappointed with the penalty incident."
