ROY Keane had no complaints with the referee after his Ipswich Town side grabbed the winner in the seventh minute of injury-time against Coventry City.

It was a breathless finale with Town chalking up a terrific 3-2 victory, even though two goals were scored after the allotted four minutes of injury-time had passed.

Pablo Counago was the last gasp hero, chipping keeper Keiren Westwood in the seventh and final minute of stoppage-time, after City had equalised through Richard Wood just two minutes earlier.

"If the game had finished 2-2, then I would have not been sitting here criticising the referee. I know that I wouldn't," insisted Keane.

"I thought the four minutes added on at the end were fair enough. I didn't have an issue with the amount of time being added on.

"And remember it's always a minimum of four minutes. I'm not complaining about anything, not now!

"But then I've never complained before about officials. You know me.

You have to play to the final whistle.

"I've been told since the age of six or seven to always play to the final whistle," added Keane.

Earlier, Clinton Morrison's third minute opener had been cancelled out by Stern John's 42nd minute equaliser, his first goal for Town.

Jack Colback had swept the hosts into a 52nd minute lead, before all the excitement unfolded in stoppage time.
