CHORLEY FC boss Garry Flitcroft is just calming down now after controversial refereeing decisions helped knock his side out of the FA Cup.
The Magpies were beaten 3-1 against Frickley Athletic at Victory Park but that was not the only thing they lost – as they missed out on some cash to boost their injury ravaged squad.
Flitcroft said: “If we had 11 men on the pitch I think we would have won it.
“Tom Ince did not go into harm the guy, in fact his challenge was worse.
“They the penalty was dubious because our player was trying to protect his face
“Dale also had some bruising on his ribs where the ball had hit him.
“To make matters worse we picked up a few injuries to Tom (Walker) and Teaguey (Andrew Teague).
“We are having a lot of injury problems at the minute but I hope to have Ashley Parillon back and Jamie Vermiglio is getting closer to training.
“Kieran Walmsley is still six weeks of coming back so we just have to juggle things about.
“I might have to go into the market to bring in another defender.”
Flitcroft is appealing for fans to come to watch the club in the FA Trophy on Saturday at 3pm at Victory Park when they take on Whitby Town so that fans can boost the coffers.
