They were denied three penalty shouts by VAR, prompting a bold post-match statement on social media, criticizing the decisions. The club believes that referee Anthony Taylor and VAR Stuart Attwell made poor decisions that went against them.

They accused Attwell of being a Luton Town supporter and called for the release of audio footage from the match to understand the decision-making process. The club’s legal team is preparing a letter to be sent to the broadcasters, and they have also called for new rules to prevent officials from being involved in matches that could impact the clubs they support.

It is claimed that ex-referee Mark Clattenburg spoke with PGMOL boss Howard Webb to request Attwell’s removal from the match. The club’s dissatisfaction has led to further actions in seeking transparency and fairness in officiating.
