Man City to lodge complaint on fourth official with Football Association

London, Sep.22 (ANI): Manchester City will complain to the Football Association over the behaviour of fourth official Alan Wiley in Sunday's heated derby.

City are furious with Wiley for shooing away boss Mark Hughes when he questioned where all the added time had come from.

Then Wiley stood laughing with United boss Alex Ferguson after Michael Owen's 96th-minute winner.

The Sun quoted Hughes as saying: "The board had gone up for four minutes of additional time at the same time as Craig Bellamy made it 3-3. The additional time after the four minutes didn't sit comfortably with me. We feel aggrieved."

City are just as angry over Wiley's rude treatment of Hughes only to cosy up and share a joke with Ferguson. That just added to the hurt and sense of injustice for City who equalised three times before eventually going down 4-3.

Hughes now has to lift his players for tomorrow's Carling Cup tie with Fulham at Eastlands. (ANI)
