Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis has criticised the officials following the weekend defeat to Portsmouth.

"It was a really poor, inept performance from the referee and his two officials" - Steve Davis
Davis believes on loan striker Wes Thomas made the most of an attempted challenge from Alex midfielder Andy Bond that resulted in a controversial first-half penalty for the home side.

He was also unhappy over the tackle which put Crewe striker AJ Leitch-Smith out of the game and on the sidelines for probably around a month.

The Alex chief was similarly angered by another challenge from Pompey defender Lubo Michalik on Mathias Pogba which earned his side only a free-kick.

"It was a really poor, inept performance from the referee and his two officials," Davis told BBC Stoke. "Their centre-half cynically bodychecks Pogs when he was in in on goal and didn't even get booked. Then he does get booked and that's a game-changing situation. He should have had a red card.

"I felt that it wasn't a penalty," he continued. "He didn't touch him. I thought he dived. And, when you watch it, you can see that he dived. He doesn't make any contact. That was a poor decision."
