Notts County boss Steve Thompson defended his actions after being sent to the stands during the 2-1 victory at Accrington Stanley. Thompson reacted furiously to a challenge by Alan Rogers on Magpies midfielder David Pipe, a clash that resulted in both players being red-carded. Afterwards, Thompson said: "It was diabolical from a player of Rogers' experience. "I broke my leg as a player and I could tell from a mile off what he was going to do. David has done nothing wrong, aside from check that his leg was still there. "I care for my players and when I see something like that, I am going to react. "I simply said that I thought the officials had cheated us. That's all."
