Referee Blamed Again!

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez said he was "not happy with some situations and decisions" from his side during their draw with bottom side Fulham at St James' Park.

"The worst thing is that, in a game we could win, where we were pushing and had control, we could have lost it in the last counter-attack," said Benitez. "It's good that we didn't lose but the negative is that we gave Fulham those situations to score and were a bit lucky in the end.

"You have to find the balance if you want to win. Sometimes you're attacking but make a wrong decision and leave yourself exposed."

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: "Sometimes it can be tense at home, when they say you have to win the game, but Fulham spent a lot of money in the summer. They are bottom but have a good team. They are organised, they had five at the back and were dangerous on the counter-attack.

"It's good that we didn't lose but the negative is that we gave Fulham those situations to score and were a bit lucky in the end."
