Pulis bemoans ref justice

Next Story

Stoke manager Tony Pulis felt his side had been "kicked in the teeth" by poor refereeing decisions during their 1-0 defeat at Norwich.

Bradley Johnson's headed goal proved enough to secure the Canaries a second successive Barclays Premier League home win. Pulis, though, disputed the award of the initial free-kick for a foul by full-back Andy Wilkinson on Robert Snodgrass out on the far touchline, and also referee Andre Marriner ruling Charlie Adam had dived earlier in the first half.

"The goal was a disappointment. I have been in to see the referee to have a quick chat," said Pulis. I thought it certainly was not a free-kick, and the disappointing thing is when the lad falls, Andre and the linesman are so close to it."
