Wolves boss Mick McCarthy stuck by his reaction to Frank Simek's late challenge on Michael McIndoe which ultimately saw the Owls right-back sent off on Saturday.
Simek, who started the weekend in good spirits after receiving his first call-up for the US national side, ended it in disgrace after his late challenge on McIndoe saw him sent off before the Molineux club took advantage of their extra men to draw level late on through Andy Keogh.
The challenge sparked uproar on the Wolves bench - with Owls fans believing McCarthy's reaction influenced the referee's decision to send Simek off instead of issuing a yellow card.
But the former Sunderland and Republic of Ireland boss insisted there was no doubt about the sending off, and said Owls boss Brian Laws would have reacted in the same manner had it been the other way around.
'Even if he did nick the ball - and I don't think he did - it was still a sending off offence in my opinion,' McCarthy told the official Wolves website.
'People will say I was a physical player but I never did that. I like Frank - he is a competitive player, but he deserved his punishment. It's unacceptable and there is no place in the game for that.
'McIndoe wasn't fully functional after that. His leg is in a bad way. I reacted to it but I can guarantee you that if it had been the other way around then Brian Laws would have done the same.'
Laws is still debating over whether to appeal against the decision, but the American is set to have a spell on the sidelines following the dismissal.
