IPSWICH Town striker Alan Lee today said he believed Barnsley defender Dennis Souza had deliberately elbowed him in the face during last night's game.
Lee added that he had been told by the referee not to react to the alleged incident.
He also said ref Darren Drysdale had told him he would look at the video of the match and take a view on the incident Souza was accused of being involved in.
The matter may then be forwarded to the FA if Drysdale believes there is a case against the Tykes' player.
If any action is taken against Souza it could result in him missing the FA Cup semi-final against Cardiff.
Lee, who said he was unsure whether he was inside the box when fouled soon after the alleged elbowing offence, admitted that the players deserved their after-match dressing down by the manager.

Lee said: “Our heads went down at 2-1. That is not right and the gaffer was right to have a go.
“There is no excuse for how we ended the game.
“But we had a couple of penalty calls, their keeper made some great saves - and we hit the bar twice.
“I think I must have broken a mirror at some stage, as I have struck the woodwork about six times recently.
“I feel sharp and ready to go again, but was left disappointed by the game.
“We have nine huge matches left starting with Charlton on Saturday.”
