Stoke profited from referee's decisions, says Di Matteo
Di Matteo queries Stoke penalties
West Brom boss Roberto Di Matteo hinted Stoke should stop moaning about refereeing decisions after he felt they profited from them in their 3-0 win.
Stoke boss Tony Pulis believes his side have often suffered poor decisions and wants referees to be relegated, but the Potters won two penalties on Saturday.
"Stoke have had a lot of complaints in the past but they got everything today," said Di Matteo.
But Pulis replied: "We are due a few penalties and decisions."
He added: "I have not seen them [in replays] so I just hope they are penalties and good decisions."
The Potters were put on the way to their third consecutive Premier League win when Matthew Etherington tucked home a spot-kick after referee Chris Foy decreed that Scott Carson had fouled Kenwyne Jones.
Pulis pleased with 'massive' win
Jon Walters doubled the lead by converting his side's second penalty after Simon Cox fouled Dean Whitehead, with the former Ipswich man adding a third in stoppage time.
"Football can be very cruel sometimes and today was an example of it," said Di Matteo, whose side are now without a win in five games.
"I thought the first incident changed the game. It was a very harsh penalty because there wasn't much contact between the two players. We usually don't get those decisions for us.
"The second one was also a harsh one and it is one we probably wouldn't have got if it was in our favour. It was shoulder-to-shoulder and there was not much in it.
"We're not complaining about the refereeing. We should have done better in certain situations, which is our fault, but you need some decisions to go your way.
"We need to roll our sleeves up and try to get some points. We're a bit down at the moment but we need to pick the players up. No one said it was going to be easy, we're just glad of the points we already have."
