Bolton Wanderers manager Ian Evatt has suggested that ‘strong officials’ are needed when opposition teams take on Wycombe Wanderers.

The 41-year-old was livid at some of the decisions referee Andy Woolmer made during the match at Adams Park, which ended in a 1-0 victory for the Chairboys.

The former Chesterfield boss claimed that Wanderers ‘get away with more than what they should’, and the Trotters ‘did not deserve to lose the game’.

Speaking to the club’s media following the fixture on February 18, which was Bolton’s third visit to Adams Park without scoring, Evatt said: “These are very tight games and a draw would have been a good result.

“We did not deserve to lose the game, but if there was a stereotypical victory for them, today was there.

“It’s ridiculous and it was farcical at times during the second half.

“Their players kicked Shola [Shoretire] up and down all game, there was one tackle that was really high on Shola’s knee before he gets a booking in the 89th minute* when the game is over.

“We need strong officials, especially here [at Wycombe], because we all know what’s coming.

“It’s talked about within the game.

“Gaz is a great guy, a really nice guy, but sometimes because of that, his team gets away with more than what they should.

“I’m frustrated as we’ve lost the game but there is still plenty of football to be played.”

*Shola Shoretire was booked in the 53rd minute and was substituted in the 57th minute of Bolton's loss at Wycombe
