Karl Robinson let out his anger at refereeing decisions as his Salford City team received two red cards in their loss to AFC Wimbledon.

Both captain Elliott Watt and Theo Vassell were sent off in added time as an Omar Bugiel goal condemned The Ammies to a loss at Plough Lane.

The manager called the decision “the most shambolic refereeing I’ve seen in probably ten years.”

He said: “If Theo Vassell got sent off for shouting, that was a disgrace. Five of their players went for the referee during that game and said worse things in front of me.”

Robinson’s men currently sit 20th in the table with their safety in the football league still yet to be confirmed following another loss.

“For me, for them to then send my player off for a decision when we kicked the ball their lad was six yards away from the ball. How can this happen, it’s a disgrace!”

Despite the result, Robinson was impressed with his side’s mentality going into the match and believed they deserved to leave London with all three points.

“If anyone questions my player’s attitude or integrity, what we stand for I think you’re in the wrong today. I think everything I was looking for today, I got in abundance.”

“I think if you were a neutral in here today I think you’d certainly say that Salford were the better team. The referee was completely up against Salford”

This result has only seemed to fire the gaffer up as he seemed to be motivated by what occurred.

“It only allows me now to drive this football club way further forward than where it is. If I was ever gonna immerse myself in something now I am cause now I’m angry. ”

“This is the first time we are putting these barriers up so for the time I’m at this football club, it’s us against the world.”

“We’re going to give everything we’ve got week in week out”.

Salford will look to end their losing run on Saturday as they welcome Bradford City at 3 pm.
