Charlton boss Karl Robinson blasted referee Gavin Ward after his side beat Southend on Saturday.
The Addicks ran out 2-1 winners to make it five victories in six games in League 1.
But Robinson was still furious in his post-match press conference about Surrey-based Mr Ward’s afternoon.
“What I want to know is that there were bookings in the first half and he put one minute up and constantly there was time-wasting.
“The second we go into the lead all of a sudden it became a problem. I don’t get his thoughts.
“The tackle on Ezri Konsa with two minutes to go was horrendous. Ricky Holmes got booked for getting smashed in front of me and then obviously his momentum took him into the second challenge late.
“The fourth official, I don’t know what he was doing. He was horrendous. I shouldn’t have spoken to him the way I did, I get that, but they’ve got a job to do.
“I was told at the referees office before that they would get involved in decisions that are in front of them and that was five yards away.
“I have wasted too much energy trying to fight the assistant referee and the fourth official.
“I want to see the referee as I don’t think he was acceptable at any stage. There was an elbow into Pearce in the first half.
“The consistency in his decisions were not there. Our fans are not stupid and they could sense that.”
The Addicks boss was happy with his team’s first goal, however, as Chris Solly’s right-wing cross was headed in by striker Josh Magennis.
“That goal is the perfect coach’s goal,” he said. “It doesn’t get any better, we worked on it all week.
“We knew (Michael) Kightly played very narrow and we knew we’d get a two v one in that area. But the quality of the cross was there.
“Josh must be on cloud nine, a new contract, two international goals and almost in Russia for the World Cup, and three in three for us.”
The three points moved Charlton up to second in the table.
But when asked if he was looking at the league table, Robinson responded: “No. We’ve got 15 points that’s all I know.
“I don’t know what anyone is doing around us, all we can worry about is ourselves.”
