Ian Evatt told referee Neil Hair he felt he got the key match decisions wrong in Bolton Wanderers' loss to Tranmere Rovers before being dismissed following full-time at Prenton Park.
Danny Lloyd put Rovers in front early on before James Vaughan added Tranmere's second when Liam Feeney was brought down by Ryan Delaney.
Wanderers grabbed a goal back through Antoni Sarcevic and Delaney was shown a second yellow card after a foul on Vaughan shortly after.
But the manner of the award of the Rovers penalty and how Tranmere defender Manny Monthe avoided a second yellow card for a bringing down a through on goal Sarcevic when both sides had 11 men were major talking points.
Evatt was also dismissed after full-time for apparent dissent with referee Hair and the Bolton boss had his say on the performance of Hair and the other officials, whom Wanderers intend to report to the FA.
And he feels the lack of a decision when Monthe brought down Sarcevic was 'baffling' as he felt Wanderers were on the wrong end of several bad decisions.
He said: “I’d like to think that I’m always fair and honest and very rarely do I get things or say the wrong thing in terms of how I’m feeling and what I’ve seen.

"If I feel like we’ve been outplayed, I’ll say that, and if I feel like the referee has been good, I’ll say that as well, but today I think the whole stadium will understand my frustration.
"We were on the wrong end of not just one bad decision but probably three or four.
“Especially the Monthe and Sarcevic one was baffling, really baffling because at 2-1 when we’re having all the play and all the chances, if they go down to 10 with the way we dominate possession, I think there’s only one outcome so that had a massive effect on the game, it’s a key match decision and that’s what I said to him when he sent me off.
"I said, ‘look, your key match decisions, you’ve got wrong today and you need to look at them’.
"He took offence to that and sent me off. The results aren’t there at the moment and it’s really disappointing and I’d be having a lot of headaches if I thought we were getting what we deserved.
"At the minute, I don’t think there’s anybody who can look at the games we’re playing and think we deserve to lose or deserve not to be getting better results, so we have to stick at it, stick together and keep working hard.”
