Gary Brabin declared York a shambles as he hit out at at their “pantomime” antics.
The Tranmere boss was fuming with the opposition’s constant play acting as they battled to a 0-0 draw at Bootham Crescent.
He was also less than impressed by referee Andrew Miller, especially for his decision to send off midfielder Jeff Hughes for a tackle on Richard Brodie.
“You could see the anger on our fans faces”, he said.
“I don’t want to say the first thing that rolls off my tongue. I’ll leave that to the 300 hundred Tranmere supporters who were here.
“I’d have to see it again, but from where we were, he hasn’t gone anywhere near him.
“If you’d watched the game clearly, you could see what was going on. It was like a pantomime.
“But that’s out of our control. All we can do it try and control what we’re in control of, and that was our performance.
“We’ve upset everyone except for our players, our staff and our supporters.
“I think everyone apart from them is absolutely gutted that we got something out of the game.”
Despite what Brabin felt his side were up against, the manager was thrilled with how his side played.
They did not just cling on – they at times played by far the better football, and it was just a lack of cutting edge that cost them once again.
“The lads didn’t get what they deserved,” he continued.
“I thought it was an excellent first half. We had some great chances.
“The lads were different class, and the supporters were excellent as well.
“They gave the lads that little bit of extra energy they needed to sustain the 96 minutes that were played.”
