Bruce unhappy with decisions

Last Updated: Fri, 28 Mar 2014 14:14

Steve Bruce will head to Stoke on Saturday still seething over a decision he feels cost Hull three points against West Ham.

Goalkeeper Allan McGregor is set to be ruled out for the rest of the season with kidney damage following an incident in the first half of his side's 2-1 defeat against the Hammers on Wednesday night.

McGregor was sent off for a challenge on Mohamed Diame which resulted in his injury, while referee Mike Dean also awarded a penalty which led to the east London outfit taking the lead.

The result left Bruce still searching for one more win to reach 10 for the season - a figure he believes will be enough to keep them up.

"I will speak to (referees' chief) Mike Riley again but I seem to have called him more this year than I have in my whole career," he said.

"It is happening on too many big occasions. It has cost us at Tottenham, Swansea and West Ham and that for me is far too many.

"I know it's a difficult job but we have to improve it and for me a bit of common sense has got to come back into it.

"I think referees are put under too much pressure. They can't seem to referee like they used to - with a bit of common sense - and that's the disappointing thing for me."
