Southend United midfielder Bilel Mohsni bemoans the performance of the referee in Sunday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy final defeat to Crewe Alexandra.

Southend United midfielder Bilel Mohsni has insisted that Crewe Alexandra's second goal in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final on Sunday should not have stood.

The Frenchman, whose side lost 2-0 to the League One outfit, believes that he was fouled by Luke Murphy in the buildup to Max Clayton's goal.

"Of course it's a foul because he pushed me from my back," he told Press Association Sport.

"I did it in the first half and he (the referee) gave a free kick so he has to give me the free kick. When you lose the ball in this position Crewe are a good team. It's really, really a shame but we have to move on.

"In the league we have five more games to play, maybe come back here and have a chance to win in the playoffs. We will see."

Southend currently sit 12th in the League Two table.
