Iwelumo Protests Innocence

Iwelumo Protests Innocence

Former Colchester United forward Chris Iwleumo has protested his innocence in the wake of a furore over his involvement in a controversial sending off upon his return to Layer Road with Charlton.

Iwelumo, scorer of a recent brace against Sheffield Wednesday which is credited with saving Alan Pardew`s job, denies he took a dive in order to influence referee Mike Russell in his decision to dismiss Matt Connolly for a professional foul.

"I didn`t dive," Iwelumo told the EADT after the game. "I never dive as a player. I was caught." The Scott went on to add that, while he was delighted with the initial reception he was afforded, it was disappointing to experience the wrath of the Layer Road faithful.

"I was looking forward to coming back to Colchester, they were always strong during my time there. Our manager called us 'sloppy` at half-time," conceded the forward.

"Colchester were fantastic," he added.
