Defender Bevis Mugabi revealed his discontent after his goal was disallowed in the 3-0 loss to Hibernian on Saturday.
With the score still goalless, Mugabi pounced home the opener which was later ruled out by referee Andrew Dallas for foul by midfielder Mark O’Hara on Hibernian’s Lewis Stevenson in the build up to the goal.
“Mark O’Hara at the back stick just outmuscled his man. And I was lucky enough to get on the end of it but unfortunately the ref disallowed it,” Mugabi told the Motherwell Times.
“I think for a foul by O’Hara on one of their players. In my opinion there wasn’t a foul.”
Second-half goals from Martin Boyle, Christian Doidge and Stephen McGinn saw Hibs climb up to third place in the Scottish Premiership log.
“It was definitely not a 3-0 game. I feel like the scoreline’s very, very harsh on us. Especially with the way that we played. It’s not like we played badly.
“We had chances, I had a few chances and it just never went our way.”
At 1-0, Mugabi also had a chance to level matters but his header from a corner bounced back off the post.
He added: “Literally I thought the ball was in. Everything went well with my movement, I lost my man, had a jump on him, had a few yards on him, had a good contact and I thought: ‘Yeah, this is in’.
“It was just one of those moments that didn’t go our way again. It was definitely a sore one. As soon as it hit the post and then went across I was like: ‘Oh my God, not again’.”
Motherwell who face St Miren next Saturday, sit 8th with 15 points.
“That’s our target, to be in top six,” Mugabi added. “It’s still in our sight. We’ve got loads of games in December to catch up.”
“So as long as we do that, keep focused and keep morale high in the team, I don’t see why we can’t.
“I’m gutted that we couldn’t get the result against Hibs today to close the gap even more, but hopefully we can do that in December.”
