ROY Keane refused to blame referee Andy D’Urso for his side’s 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Swansea this afternoon.

Town players believed that they should have had a penalty, for Mark Gower’s tugging back of Carlos Edwards inside the box, when the score was at 2-1, but Keane was making no excuses after the game.

“The official did not lose us this game,” insisted a downbeat Keane.

“I’m not going to try and find excuses for us losing this match. We conceded two soft goals, and the second one was comical.

“It’s a very hard defeat to take, and we can have no excuses.

“We have no one to blame but ourselves,” confessed Keane.
