Stoke boss Tony Pulis was left fuming after Manchester City snatched a controversial 1-1 draw to move fourth in the Barclays Premier League.
Pulis was furious that his 10-man side were denied a stoppage-time winner at the Britannia Stadium when referee Alan Wiley ruled Ryan Shawcross had fouled goalkeeper Shay Given before heading home.
"The goal in the second half is a good goal," Pulis said. "There is no doubt Ryan gets up."
"Look at (Kolo) Toure's reaction - his head is in his hands and he is on his knees. It is a good goal and why the referee has disallowed it I just don't know, and it is very disappointing for us."
Stoke had been pegged back to 1-1 after 85 minutes when Gareth Barry cancelled out Glenn Whelan's 72nd-minute opener.
The momentum shifted as Abdoulaye Faye was shown a straight red card for pulling down Emmanuel Adebayor, but it was still Stoke who seized the initiative through Whelan. Pulis had no complaints about the dismissal of Faye but was aggrieved that a number of unspecified incidents went unpunished in the first half.
Pulis would not give details but was assumed to have been angered by a moment when Patrick Vieira appeared to kick Whelan between the legs.
"It was a good decision to send Abi off, but there were certain incidents that I am not too pleased with," Pulis said.
"We had a player [Robert Huth] given a three-game suspension after an incident a couple of months back. The referee missed an incident, the FA [Football Association] looked at it and suspended him for three games.
"There were incidents in the first half with Manchester City players where I think it is as bad if not worse. We got ours sent off but one or two of theirs didn't even get booked. It is pretty poor really."
