After watching a second-half dispay that lacked purpose, guidance and motivation, it was no surprise Newcastle boss Graeme Souness didn't want to provide answers (if he knew them) at the media conference. Instead he left assistant manager Alan Murray to face the questions.
Murray: 'The referee is supposed to have said he couldn't be sure whether it hit his arm or thigh, but that's an easy answer and he can't be pulled up.
It seems to be to be a stonewall penalty and you hope things like that go in your favour.
'It changes games. They were on a poor run and if they had gone 1-0 down their confidence would have drained further. It would have given us a lift and it would have been a different game.
'It affected the outcome, if they had gone a goal down it would have been difficult for them.'
