Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was left fuming after two incorrect refereeing decisions cheated his side out of victory against Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv in the Europa League.
The match eventually ended as a goalless draw at St James’ Park, while Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse had two perfectly legitimate goals ruled out for offside.
And though Cisse was later at fault for some wasteful finishing in front of goal that could have won the game for the home side, the Toon boss was rightly angry that the team didn’t come away with a positive result due to the officials' mistakes.
"Both goals are onside," he said.
"Fundamentally they [the officials] have got them wrong, in a tight game like that.
"In these games they are the margins. I can understand if they get it wrong once, but twice is hard to take.
"The law says it should favour the striker. Both decisions were level - I wouldn't even say that they needed to favour the striker. It's hard to take.
"They [Metalist] are a good side but they were second best in the game tonight."
