He said after the match: "I'll have to see the video because I thought the goalkeeper came up dead straight with his studs in the air. If an outfield player does that it's a foul."
City look set to be hit by a bigger blow than being denied a penalty in the game though, as 18-goal striker Burgess is thought to have sustained cruciate ligament damage to his knee. Such an injury could result in a six-month layoff, meaning that he'll miss the last two games of City's run-in and the opening months of next season as well.
Clarification on the extent of the former Blackburn, Nothern Spirit, Brentford, Stockport and Oldham player's injury is expected tomorrow.
