Manager Steve Evans, was quoted after the match as saying: "He's had an absolute shocker from start to finish. That's the worst official we have had in about five years. I don't remember playing away from home and getting so many decisions from a match official. I think that's quite hard to take as a manager. I think we're unfortunate to concede before half-time because if you've got a stopwatch that's the same as mine, he's over time".
He went on to say about Matt Ritchie and Callum Wilson: "They are two of the most gifted players on the pitch - but how they have not been booked for simulation...the mind boggles. I thought for large parts of the game we gave the best team in the league a run for their money".
