Was it a goal against Newcastle on Saturday?

Toon assistant hris Hughton says the referee was right to say "no".

This time Brown maintained a diplomatic line.

Brown: "You can go on about goalline technology but it is inconclusive and impossible for the linesman to give that.

"Shay does look like he has stepped over the line to save the ball.
"Damien Duff has done fantastically at the back post to get a touch, certainly if he doesn't Michael Turner scores.

"Both sides endeavoured to win the game, no doubt about it.

"I am pleased with the performance. It is getting the balance right between entertaining, winning football and that clean-sheet mentality and in the last two games we have got back to that ugly side of the game."

Hughton: "I think given the fact that we are the away side coming here, probably we edged it, certainly on goalscoring chances.

"We are probably the ones slightly more aggrieved we didn't come away with the win, but they are a very good side and showed they have a good squad.

"It was a typical cup tie and became very open in the second half and could have gone either way."
