NICOLAS ANELKA PULLS IT BACK TO 2-1
I asked Keegan why he had not given me the chance to start the game and he gave me the usual waffle. He was seeking a partner for Anelka but it seemed he was determined to play anyone rather than me.
However I did come on a substitute and within a few minutes Danny Tiatto was sent off for a foul on David Thompson.
