Three of the game’s four goals were penalties as Uppingham Town lost 3-1 away against Ramsey in the Peterborough League on Saturday.
Uppingham were 2-0 down at the halfway stage due to two penalty decisions that manager Richard Kendrick thought were harsh.
Dave Laughton pulled one back, coincidentally from the spot, but Town were caught pushing forward by Ramsey who added their third from open play.
He said: “The first was never a penalty. None of their guys appealed. The ball hit Jake Norton on the thigh.
“There was no fluency in the game because the referee wanted to blow up all the time.
“If we take the referee away it would have been 1-0 but we still did not do enough to have come away with a win. It was very disappointing.”
Uppingham host Coates Athletic in the league on Saturday (2pm) and then travel to play Saffron Dynamo in the Jelson Homes Senior Cup on Tuesday evening (7pm).
Uppingham: Mark Dimech, Martin Bennett, James Binley, James Coughlan, David Fish, David Laughton, Rob Lawrie, Jacob Norton, Callum O’Berg, Martin Turiccki. Subs: Omar Elkashoty, James Howe, Oli Webb.
