CRYSTAL Palace manager Neil Warnock was again left frustrated with the performance of a top flight referee, after his side lost 3-1 to Sunderland.
TV pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher on Sky both agreed the Eagles should have had a penalty inside the first minute, when Fraizer Campbell appeared to be brought down in the area by Santiago Vergini.
However Phil Dowd - who later sent Mile Jedinak off for two bookable offences - waved play on.
This follows Mark Clattenburg's failure to award Palace a clear spot kick against West Brom last weekend, for a foul on Wilfried Zaha.
Warnock, speaking after the game on Sky Sports, said: "We need a bit of luck at the minute. The only chance we've got of a penalty is somebody picking the ball up and throwing it at the referee.
"I think everybody knows it's a penalty. The referee didn't see it, but he's in a great position."
