Wise Slams Officials

Swindon Town manager Dennis Wise feels his club have lost 7 points due to bad decisions by the referee.

Speaking to the media after yesterday's game against Notts County Wise said, 'I think we much have lost seven points to poor decisions over the past few weeks.'

Going on, Wise suggested that he wasn't out to cause trouble however he wanted a solution to the sub-par officials in League Two.

'I hope I'm not getting myself into trouble over this. I am trying to be polite about it but the standard of officials isn't great. Maybe we need to sit down and talk about it.'

He told it how it was, he was not insulting about the refs and could give rationale as to why he was saying what he did. I hope he does not get in trouble for it.

All managers have a go at the refs. I'd imagine nothing will be done. He didn't exactly lay into the ref anyway.

The standard does seem poor, but then we are in the basement division, perhaps its par for the course down here. Its an easy excuse for a defeat - used too often I feel.

They have been pretty bad, It was always going to happen, The further down you drop, the standard of officiating drops.
