CRYSTAL Palace boss Neil Warnock wasn't happy with referee Mike Dean's failure to spot an alleged elbow from Hull City defender Michael Dawson in the 2-0 defeat at Hull City. The manager admitted he had to take striker Fraizer Campbell off after he was walking a tightrope following a booking in the first half. Despite the defeat, Warnock wasn't too downhearted about Palace's performance and said there needed to be more belief. "I can't criticise, I thought the way they played they are at home and they play sort of five and three, so I thought that was a compliment that they changed completely," he said. "I'm disappointed with one or two things but I can't fault the effort, I thought the effort was there. "We probably needed a little bit more belief. "I thought when we went a goal down it was probably our best spell - I want that before we go a goal down. "I was disappointed I had to take Fraizer Campbell off for a number of fouls which were silly but in the first minute he gets body checked outside the box, which for me is a yellow card. "And then just before half-time the elbow from Michael Dawson – I've seen red cards given for less than that and the ref doesn't see that but he sees all the little niggles that poor old Fraizer gets booked for. "I think he (the referee) should be in a position to see elbows like that and know when it is not an accident. You shouldn't be able to lead like that, it is going to be dangerous play. "They should obviously be educated a little bit better, even though he is one of our better refs."
