Roeder: 'Shola Was Offside'

Glenn Roeder admitted Ameobi's goal against Everton was offside and had no complaints about either sending-off.

Roeder: 'I am disappointed to have lost the lead again. If you look at when the chances arrived in the game, we shaded it. I would assume because the last 20 minutes was pretty end-to-end, it was relatively entertaining for supporters when both teams went for the win. But early in the second half, good chances came our way that we did not take.

'It is stating the obvious, but goals change the course of matches and had we taken the lead, I would like to think this time we would have held on and won the game.

'But right at the death, Steve Harper made a very good save and Stephen Carr produced some top drawer defending at the near post when he arrived just before Cahill to knock the ball out for a corner.

'It would have been criminal had we not taken something from the game. We feel we shaded it, but we have had to settle for a point.'

Just as a matter of interest, this was the 11th consecutive match Newcastle have failed to win when Steve Bennett was the referee.

As for Everton's tactic off pushing out on free-kicks and relying on the referee to get it right every time ... MORE FOOL THEM FOR TRUSTING THE REFEREE!
