David Jones and Andy Cole exchanged words after Burnley and Cardiff City drew 3-3 on Saturday afternoon. Darren Purse was sent off for a late challenge on the former England and Manchester United striker.

Cardiff fought back from being 2-0 down to take a point in what has become a meaningless run in to the end of the season.  Purse will probably miss the FA Cup final after receiving his marching orders - he was sent off for a bad challenge on Andy Cole and could face a suspension that would rule him out for Wembley. Graham Alexander and Cole had earlier put Burnley in front before Cardiff City struck back through Joe Ledley's penalty and an Aaron Ramsey shot. Clark Carlisle restored Burnley's lead but Steve Thompson levelled late on. 

Cardiff boss David Jones's view on the dismissal of Purse: "It's the reaction of the player which has got Darren sent off. I will be appealing against the decision. Darren has over played the ball but he has not tried to do him. "Andrew Cole needs to take a long hard look at himself."

Speaking after the game  Andy Cole said: "I have 10 stitches in my leg. I have played the game at the highest level for 18 years and some muppet tries to challenge me like that. I only had eyes for the ball and what disappoints me is Darren said I went over the ball yet he must have gone higher than me. It's (Cardiff boss) David Jones who should take a long hard look at himself. After the career I have had, what he thinks is irrelevant."
