Rotherham United manager Steve Evans will complain to the FA about referee Eddie Ilderton after two of his players were sent off yesterday.

Steve Evans has said that he will be complaining to the Football Association about the referee at Rotherham United's match against Burton Albion.

Eddie Ilderton sent off two Millers players in their 2-0 defeat in League Two yesterday afternoon, and awarded a goal which Evans believes should have been disallowed for a handball.

The Rotherham manager told Sky Sports News: "The referee was totally, obnoxious rude and embarrassing to me and my staff throughout the match and at half time.

"I will speak to the Football Association on Monday. We will do it properly as we are obliged to do, but I have to say that the words he used staggered every one of us.

"In the case of David Noble, I don't think [Burton manager] Gary Rowett thinks either challenge deserved a yellow card, I don't think Gary Rowett would argue that Billy Kee handled the ball in the build-up to his second goal and I don't think Gary Rowett thought Michael O'Connor stamped on one of his players."

The win moved Burton into the automatic promotion places, while Rotherham dropped out of the playoff places.
