Charlton manager Karl Robinson launched into an attack on referee Nicholas Kinseley after tonight’s 1-1 draw with Bradford City.

The Addicks chief reckoned he would be straight in touch with the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) over a lack of protection for Tariqe Fosu and Sullay Kaikai.

“The second half was balanced and even – they had a go and we had a go,” said Robinson. “In the first half we were unplayable, one of the best halves of football I’ve seen here for a long time. The referee lost control of the game.

“The top managers talk about protection of your skill, what they call artists and flair players. Today Sullay Kaikai and Tariqe Fosu got some horrendous treatment.

“I’m not taking anything away from Bradford but these players have to be protected.

“Sullay and Tariqe looked sensational. There was only one way to stop them.

“Some of the tackles in my eyes were very frustrating. I didn’t think Chris Solly’s tackle was a good tackle – being honest. I can’t have it all my own way. I’ve also got to be transparent.”
