An outrageous cheating attempt this afternoon by Steve Bruce’s Hull v Newcastle – watch it here in this video special.

With Newcastle one up through Remy Cabella’s excellent left foot strike, Hull get a free-kick to the right of Newcastle’s eighteen yard box.

In a dangerous position, the ball is arrowed into the United box and former Sunderland player Elmohamady knocks it past Tim Krul for the equaliser.

However, the linesman’s flag is up and this brings incredulous looks from Elmohamady and Steve Bruce.

Judge for yourself below as you watch this footage courtesy of Shane Rochford, did it just glance off the Hull defender’s hand…?
