Adams: Penalty very hard to take

Sarginson gave the away side a spot-kick when he adjudged Gareth Owen to have fouled Clayton Donaldson, with Shaun Miller blasting home in the 60th minute to hand his team all three points.[LNB]Adams was fuming with the decision that dented Vale's hopes of reaching the play-offs - the result leaving his side trailing the last berth by seven points - and confronted the official at the full-time whistle.[LNB]"The referee was only the person in the ground who thought it was a penalty," he said. "I had a perfect view of the incident and Gareth has made a great tackle. I don't mind losing games of football but that is very hard to take.[LNB]"I did talk to the referee on the pitch but I was very careful in what I said to him. Referees can gang up on you and you can be in serious trouble so I just made my point in the right way and made sure I didn't use any bad language.[LNB]"I'm not saying my team played well because they didn't. The effort and commitment was there but the quality wasn't and the game had 0-0 written all over it."[LNB][LNB]
