  • Dyer, having ran onto a through-ball from Faye took a shot only to see it saved. However the ball rebounded back to Dyer and just as he was about to head it into the empty net he was pushed in the back by Georgatos.
  • With Newcastle breaking from deep, Kostoulas, who already had a booking, chopped down Butt. Referee Ibanez initially booked Schurrer, but after a consultation with one of his assistants he called over Kostoulas and produced his second yellow and thus then the red card.
