MORTON forward Gozie Ugwu admits that he has been left frustrated by refereeing performances after having a goal chalked off against Ayr United.

The 28-year-old forward thought he'd put Ton ahead in the first half only to be penalised for a foul on goalkeeper Aidan McAdams.

Ugwu then saw Michael Ledger's strike chopped off after Mike Roncone judged Ugwu to have fouled the Honest Men 'keeper again in the build-up.

The Ton striker believes that he hasn’t had a fair crack of the whip from officials recently but he is adamant that he needs to put his frustrations to one side and focus on Friday night's visit of Kilmarnock.

He told the Tele: “There have been two goals involving myself chalked off, and I think at least one of them should’ve stood which kind of says it all.

“If it was the other way round, if it was the 'keeper making that challenge on the striker would it have been given? I don’t know.

“But I've just got to take it on the chin and try to look forward to Kilmarnock on Friday now.

“I thought I was well within my right to challenge for the ball. I wasn’t going to let him just claim it and there wasn’t any malice in the jump either. I just went for the ball.

“It’s disappointing just now because recently it’s just been fouls going against me as opposed for me. It’s frustrating to play in it, I can't lie, but we’ll move on to next week now."
