Kevin Nolan seeking EFL talks over standard of refereeing

Joe Jones

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has admitted that he wants a word with the EFL over the standard of refereeing in League Two.

The Magpies boss claims the Magpies were denied clear penalties against Crewe Alexandra and Portsmouth, and feels Newport County's spot-kick on the final day of the season shouldn't have been given.

"I am not really happy about it," he told the Nottingham Post.

"If we keep moaning about it, will anything get done? It's something I am going to have to think about.

"I will see if I can speak to somebody at the league to get some clarity because I just feel there have been a lot of major decisions that have gone against us.

"Had those decisions gone in our favour who knows where we could have finished in the league?

"I can accept human error, but there's been too many. I am not one to keep harping on about referees because I know it's a difficult job.

"But I just think over the last month we've come unstuck over some bad decisions and it's affected us."
