AFC Sudbury manager Nicky Smith was far from happy with the standard of refereeing in Tuesday night's Suffolk Premier Cup tie against Bury Town.

However he was quick to stress that the decisions made had no effect on the result of the game.

Smith said; “We showed some defensive frailties and their pace caught us out, but others are there to help the defence out so it was not entirely their fault.”

Of his assistant manager Chris Tracey who played his third game in seven days and netted his second goal in those games he said, “He did well and used his experience to good effect.”
