Sheffield Wednesday manager Steve Bruce revealed it was the referee’s ‘bamboozling’ decision to allow both sides wear their blue home kits in Millwall’s goalless draw.

Both manager were left bemoaning Tim Robinson’s decision and claimed it contributed to a game of little quality at The Den.

As is custom the visitors travelled with an away kit but Bruce claimed they were told to wear their traditional blue and white stripes.

“We are not guilty, it was the referee’s call,” said Bruce.

“We were bamboozled, we had the call at four o’clock from the referee saying to play in blue and white, I always thought they played in dark blue so you should ask the referee, but it was certainly a strange decision.

“We had a yellow kit with us but it’s got a black stripe down the sleeve, which I thought would’ve been better.”

His opposite number Neil Harris was equally confused by the referee’s decision and claimed it hampered the quality of the game.

“Standing on the side line wasn’t too bad,” he said.

“But these are top players, and they don’t need to look directly at a player to pass to them, it’s all in their peripheral vision, but they couldn’t do that tonight.

“In the modern day I don’t know how we’ve been like we are.

“But did it alter the outcome of the game? I don’t think so.”

The goalless draw leaves Millwall 20th in the Championship, five points clear of the relegation zone.
