Warri Wolves have sent a formal protest letter to the Nigeria Football Federation over the conduct of the centre referee during Wednesday’s Federation Cup quarter-final tie against FC IfeanyiUbah, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The Seasiders claimed they scored a goal in the second half of the encounter played at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta which was wrongly disallowed by the referee, Ola Olayemi, with FC IfeanyiUbah leading 1-0 at the time.
General Manager of the club, Moses Etu, claimed Completesportsnigeria.com that the referee made a lot of questionable calls in the encounter that affected the performance of his side.
Etu also debunked claims that it was his side that abandoned the game and stated that it was the referee that blew off the game.
“We have sent a protest letter to the NFF on what happened in the game,” the journalist-turned-administrator told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“The performance of the referee in the game was not up to standard and he made a lot of questionable calls against us.
“We scored a good goal which he wrongly disallowed. It’s an injustice against us and we hope the NFF will look into the case judiciously.”
