Stanley boss John Coleman admitted he is ‘getting sick of football’ after the 2-1 defeat at MK Dons.

Jack Payne whipped a delightful free-kick into the top corner to cancel out Jack Nolan’s opener with 19 minutes remaining.

Left wing-back Joe Tomlinson was the Dons' hero in stoppage time, firing home a deflected effort in the third minute of added time to send the home faithful wild.

But Coleman did not mince his words when discussing the performance of the match officials.

He said: “To be honest, I’m getting sick of football because it’s just not fair. I’ve just watched a game there that wasn’t played out according to the rules.

“You look at that incident where our lad (Nolan) gets chopped down running away. He gets booked, I get booked and their lad doesn’t.

“We had a free-kick on 92 minutes, the header comes off their lad for a corner. He doesn’t give a corner, he gives a goal kick. They get a corner and they score from it, that was the difference in the game.”

The result sees Coleman's side slip to 13th in the League Two table - five points off the play-off places. The Reds are back in action on Tuesday night when they welcome Wimbledon to the Wham Stadium.
