See thisislondon.co.uk/lite Jackett: no excuse for racist taunting KENNY JACKETT has added his weight to Millwalls condemnation of those who racially abused Jason Price and Carlton Cole during Tuesday nights Carling Cup tie at Upton Park. He said: Jason is an experienced pro who didnt want to make an issue of the abuse he got and I understand Carlton has said something about just having to accept it. I dont agree. I dont believe any black player should have to put up with being racially abused. Speaking ahead of tonights clash with Brighton at The Den, he added: To get things in perspective we have made great strides in football from when I was a player and racist abuse was rife. At our club, as elsewhere, incidents like this have become a rarity now, but we clearly all need to keep working to eradicate it. LITESPORT NEIL WARNOCK has tipped Manchester City to break up the established Big Four this season after watching his Crystal Palace side knocked out of the Carling Cup. CitymanagerMarkHughes sent out a team valued at around200mfortheSelhurst Park tie last night and was rewarded with goals from Carlos Tevez (main pic) and Shaun Wright-Phillips. And Warnock (inset) reck- ons the star-studded City squadcanseriouslychallenge the likes of Manchester United,Liverpool,Arsenal and Chelsea. I think theyll finish in the top three, let alone the top four, he said. Its nice to watch a few feathers ruffled and thats whattheyregoingtodoatthe top of the Premier League. Palace come back down to earth on Monday nightwhentheyreturnto league action with a trip to the far-from-glamourous London Road to take on Peterborough. But Warnock is hoping his team will have been buoyed bythefacttheyheldCitygoal- less for 50 minutes before Wright-Phillips netted. Ithoughtweplayedaswell as could be expected and Im pleased to have given them a game, he said.
