Paul Dummett has offered his version of events after Leicester City boss Claude Puel led the post-game protests following a penalty storm at the King Power Stadium.
The Toon full-back seemed to get a slight touch on the ball after sliding in on Riyad Mahrez in the first half but referee Stuart Attwell didn’t award a spot-kick.
This led to the Leicester bench surrounding the fourth official and Puel feeling his team had been denied a clear penalty after the game.
Dummett explained: “It looked like he was already falling before I’ve slipped but my positioning wasn’t great to let him get in.
“The linesman said he wasn’t 100% sure it was a foul, so couldn’t give it.
“It’s one that went for us and it’s brilliant to come here and win.”
After the game, Puel had told his Press conference: “Yeah, he touched his foot, for me it is a penalty.”
He said: “I have had players sent off just for touching the face of a player.
“I cannot argue too much.
“And the main thing for us was the performance of the team, we deserved to win.”
