Graham Cummins' stoppage-time header from Lee Holmes' cross ensured the points were shared following Joe Garner's opener for the Cumbrians, but Westley not a happy man, convinced as he was that Laird's inswinging corner in the first half crossed the goalline.

"I'm getting sick to death of decisions," said the former Stevenage chief. "I'm really frustrated by the way decisions are getting made not in our favour and against us. When we score a goal, we don't have the goddamn thing given. We need to look at it closely, all these decisions going against us.

"I really feel for the players because there is something that we've done to create this situation and I don't know what it is. Maybe it is just that we're a big club where people think they've got to come and make their mark on us.

"I'm staggered that the goal wasn't given early on. I could see from the dugout that the ball was over the line by a distance. You got a linesman and a referee to see the ball over the line and it doesn't get given.

"You get that early goal, you spring them out and then you can play. But we don't get that early goal and it's a different game. I'm told it was two yards in. The players knew it was in, the crowd knew it was in. All the indicators were there."
