    how the hell did he give a free Kick? Newcastle scored a penalty, the ref then blows up and gives Burton a free kick in their own 18 yd box?

    Bizarre!?

    I'm guessing a Newcastle player encroached on the area and the referee doesn't understand the rules.

    My guess is a Newcastle player fouled a Burton player?

    Your guess was indeed correct, as explained on Sky Sports News and the ref has apologised.

    Could have been very costly to Newcastle.
    Can't believe now all four officials are miked up he wasn't advised of the mistake.

    talking about ref's, after GT scored on Sunday, and then got a bloody nose. Why did he have to wait to be called on by the ref after Oxford had kicked off again? Didn't Oxford also bring a sub on, and he came straight on?
