Hull City manager Steve Bruce was left furious at the officials after his side crashed to a fourth straight Premier League defeat on Tuesday, at the hands of Crystal Palace, writes Sky Sports.

Jason Puncheon’s goal in the 16th minute at Selhurst Park was enough to hand victory to the home side and see them move level on points with Hull, who are now in 13th place in the Premier League, and only five points clear of the drop zone.

Bruce, whose misery was compounded by goalkeeper Allan McGregor’s late sending off for violent conduct, believed that the visitors were denied two clear penalties by referee Roger East. He said: "We are hugely disappointed. I got fined two weeks ago for comments made against referees and I don't want to again.

"But for me, there are two stonewall penalties in the first half and then to send the goalkeeper off in the last five minutes, it was innocuous. It summed up our night really, it was never going to be. We've played well and unfortunately we haven't got anything out of the game."

The Tigers boss also claimed that referees should be made to explain their decisions after each game, adding: "There are three horrible decisions which have gone against us and that ultimately cost us the game. I think the referees have to sometimes come out on the cameras and we must question, should they be refereeing the games."
