Blackpool caretaker boss Tony Parkes pointed an accusing finger at referee Lee Mason after his side lost 1-0 at home to Lancashire rivals Burnley.
Mason consulted Parkes and Clarets boss Owen Coyle in the 21st minute to ask them if they wanted to abandon the game but a joint decision was taken to continue playing.
Parkes said: "We should have had a penalty in the first half but the referee was that concerned with abandoning the game that he lost concentration and missed things."
He added: "He kept coming over to the sidelines to ask myself and Owen Coyle to agree with him to abandon the game.
"I don't think he had his eye on the ball all the time and that cost us a win, never mind a point. The conditions were okay and it's very rare you abandon a game because of wind and I thought it was very strange the referee wanted to do that."
