Bristol City boss Lee Johnson revealed that the head of the referees has apologised to him for some important decisions made during The Royals' 2-1 win last weekend.
The Robins' manager was incensed after the game, telling GetReading:
"I thought our performance was good - we had 24 shots, their keeper has made some outstanding saves.
“People say control the controllables and that’s what we did. But what you can’t do is control the uncontrollables and unfortunately that’s what done us.
“The penalty was given by someone who has probably not played football an awful lot before.
“It was two players running for the ball, the striker’s legs get tangled up as he cuts across the defender and falls over. No complaints, yet it’s a penalty.
“Obviously there was then the handball right at the end - but the same linesman didn’t give it.
“I have spoken to him (the referee) - but I’ve not got any clarification yet.”
And now, ahead of City's match against Ipswich Town, he told the press the head of referees phoned to apologise.
