MANAGER Steve Evans was prevented from communicating with assistant Paul Raynor for most of the first half of Rotherham United’s draw at Barnet.

The fourth official, Nick Cooper, stepped in after about 10 minutes and spoke to Raynor, telling him that he could not receive communication to the bench.

“It’s the first time I’ve heard that one; I don’t know where he got it from but he seemed to have made that one up,” said Raynor.

“We sought clarification on it from the referee at half-time and he said it was okay and we could carry on.”

Raynor felt Alex Revell’s red card was “a dubious decision” and said they would have a look at the dvd before deciding whether to appeal the call.
