Sunderland 0-0 West Brom: Official mistakes cost us - Poyet

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet believes that "official mistakes" cost his team the chance of victory in their 0-0 draw against West Brom, but insists he does not blame the referee.

Joleon Lescott escaped with a booking after appearing to commit a professional foul on striker Danny Graham in the fifth minute, but Poyet believes the Albion defender should have been sent off.

The result was Sunderland's 13th draw of this Premier League campaign, and leaves them just three points above the relegation zone.
