Wick joint caretaker boss Dan Cox tore into his players and the referee after the club’s scoreless SCFL Division 1 draw with Oakwood.
The hosts also had defender Ryan Barratt dismissed, harshly in the eyes of Cox, as it ended 0-0 at Crabtree Park.
It was Wick’s first action since January 26 but they were unable to build on an impressive win over Midhurst & Easebourne last time out.
The performance left Cox annoyed - as did the decision to send Barratt off.
He said: “I was not pleased with the result, nor the performance. We were poor."
Talking about the referee, he said: "I’m all for respecting the officials but after that display, how can I be? Not one bad tackle was made but four yellows and a red were shown.”
It was a game lacking in quality and clear-cut chances.
The hosts had centre-half Barratt dismissed after the restart to compound what was a frustrating afternoon on Wick’s return to action.
Wick welcome Selsey for a rearranged League Cup quarter-final clash tomorrow night (7.45pm)
