Manager reaction

Manager reaction

Micky Adams could not hide his disappointment with some of the decisions made by referee Mr Melin at the Ricoh Arena last night.

Although Adams did say that midfielder Michael Doyle would be disciplined after being sent-off for dissent, he added: 'I'm very angry about the circumstances at the end of the game.

'We were down to eight men and the referee put up six minutes of injury-time and played eight.

'I shouldn't be giving interviews as the Football Association might be listening and I'll end up in as much trouble as Michael Doyle will be in.'

Not surprisingly, Crewe manager Dario Gradi was the happier of the two bosses.

Luke Rodgers' injury-time header gave the Railwaymen a share of the spoils after a bizarre last 15 minutes that became virtually a game of attack versus defence.

'In all my years I've never come across an ending to a game like that,' said Gradi.

'Sometimes you end up playing against 10 men but you rarely play against nine and at times tonight it was eight.

'It was an average game until Micky Doyle was sent off but we were glad to get something from it.'
