Rotherham manager Steve Evans blasted referee Stephen Martin following the 2-0 loss against Sky Bet Championship leaders Bournemouth.

Goals from captain Tommy Elphick in added time at the end of the first half and a 62nd-minute effort from Callum Wilson did the damage to keep Bournemouth top of the table.

Evans laid into referee Martin for his display, fuming: “He’s had an absolute shocker from start to finish.

“I think our supporters made it known what they thought. That’s the worst official we have had in about five years.

“I don’t remember playing away from home and getting so many decisions from a match official, I think that’s quite hard to take as a manager.

“I think we’re unfortunate to concede before half-time because if you’ve got a stopwatch that’s the same as mine, he’s over time.”
