Tim Sherwood post match reaction

Tim Sherwood was naturally asked about Danny Rose after he scored the winner, was involved in the sending off of Ryan Shawcross, was booked, should have been sent off, substituted and told to go down the tunnel to diffuse the crowd. Quite a day for him.

"He's a match winner for us today. I didn't really want to bring him off, but I had to diffuse the situation and they were so hyped up."

Sherwood was asked about Rose raising his hands and pushing Cameron after he had been bundled to the floor. It was an over reaction to just being bundled into as he was kicking the ball.

"I've never heard a crowd so hyped up, so it was a case of out of sight out of mind."

"My heart was in my mouth, to be honest.
"Danny will grow from that and learn. He didn't need to make the referee make a decision and he shouldn't be putting himself in that position."

As for the sending off Sherwood felt the referee had little choice.

"I like tackling and I don't want anyone to get sent off but it was two bookings and what can you do?

"But if he hasn't been sent off I wouldn't be screaming."

Emmanuel Adebayor escaping any punishment for what appeared to be an arm into the of Shawcross early in the game and was then barked into by Charlie Adams who was not even playing, he was warming up but still had to show the true Adams everyone knows he is. Sherwood didn't see the incident and could only comment when asked:

"If he's raised his arm he's lucky."

Sherwood was naturally delighted with an away victory, the first for 2 months, adding:

"It seemed to give them the initiative after they went down to 10 men and the crowd were fantastic. They drove them on."
