Bolton boss Gary Megson has apologised to referee Howard Webb after he was dismissed in the 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion.

Matt Taylor had given Wanderers the lead at the Hawthorns, but a late strike from Robert Koren which deflected off Danny Shittu meant both sides had to settle for a point.

With five minutes of stoppage time added, Megson was looking to bring Ebi Smolarek on as a late substitute, and his anger at the match officials lead to his touchline dismissal for the closing stages.

"I got the hump and lost my head a bit and I've been sent off," Megson told Sky Sports News.

"I have apologised to Howard Webb. I shouldn't be like that but you get carried away.

"We should have won that game. We've had a lot more opportunities than they have.

"(Scott) Carson, in West Brom's goal has been a lot busier than Jussi (Jaaskelainen).

"They haven't had a shot on target throughout the 90 minutes and even the goal they scored from was going wide until it hits Danny on the thigh."
