Gary Rowett: Frustrated by loss

Marcus Holness was his primary target after he was given a straight red by referee Mick Russell for raising his hands in the direction of Wimbledon midfielder Sammy Moore in the 20th minute.

Despite Adam McGurk having given them the lead Burton finished the game without a win in September, much to the fury of Rowett.

"I'm absolutely furious that once again we've given ourselves an absolute mountain to climb by a moment of stupidity it was as simple as that," he said.

"I can handle us losing the game by making mistakes trying to do the right thing and that's all I wanted to see.

"We've shot ourselves in the foot again and we've got to stop that and I can't condone in any way, shape or form Marcus' actions.

"We've let ourselves down again. There was nothing in the game at all, 20 minutes in and whether I believe it's a red card or not, I'd like to see the incident again, I can't defend someone who pushes somebody else in the face.

"What is slightly frustrating is that a player pushed Ian Sharps two weeks ago and I was told that a push is not a sending off, and then for something similar Marcus is off here.

"But It would be an awful lot easier if he didn't push in the first place, that would be a start."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
