Dermot Gallagher reviews controversial decisions in the Premier League after each round of games, on behalf of Sky Sports.

The former top referee has now given his call on this incident in the Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United match.

Dermot Gallagher looking at what happened during an eventful 90+ minutes at the City Ground.

Dermot Gallagher talking to Sky Sports about Nottingham Forest 2 Newcastle United 3 controversy:

Incident:

‘Should Forest have been awarded penalty against Newcastle [for the Dubravka / Awoniyi incident]?’

Dermot Gallagher:

“I can understand the referee not giving it from this [his] angle.

“But when you see the replay, you can see that Martin Dubravka flicks his arm up and that’s what causes the problem for Taiwo Awoniyi.

“When he brings the arm up, that’s what VAR should see on the replay, and that’s why I thought it was a penalty.”
