Joey Barton is happy with his side’s performance

Bristol Rovers boss talks about their performance in the 4-1 win against Accrington.

Bristol Rovers’


Joey Barton

is happy with his men after their 4-1 victory over Accrington, although he is mad at the referee as he denied them a penalty that Barton thinks they deserved.

“I went to prison for less than the challenge by their keeper on James Daly,”

Barton said at the post-match press conference.

“It was the most bizarre thing I have ever seen when the referee didn’t point to the spot.

“When I asked him about it after the game and he told me the keeper was entitled to make the challenge. But if he doesn’t get the ball it has to be a penalty.

“I have been in charge for five games now and the officiating has been poor right across the board.

“I don’t want to say any more, but it’s important I make my point after a win, so people don’t think I am making excuses following a defeat.

“The score flattered a play-off chasing team in Accrington. Their goalkeeper has made a couple of great saves.

“But it is three points and no more than that. We have to keep building from here.”
