Nottingham Sent 7 Players to Announce The…….

The on-field decision to deny Nottingham Forest a penalty against Newcastle United on Saturday ought to have been overturned by VAR.

Dermot Gallagher, a former referee, expressed this opinion after watching the contentious scene on Sky Sports’ Ref Watch show. As the scores were tied at two goals apiece, Forest felt they should have been given a spot kick after Taiwo Awoniyi beat Magpies goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and went down in the penalty area.Referee Anthony Taylor dismissed appeals, and the original on-field ruling was maintained after the controversial incident was examined by VAR.

Bruno Guimaraes’ spectacular strike in the 66th minute proved to be the game-winning goal as Newcastle went on to win 3-2. However, former official Gallagher is sure that Forest should have been handed a spot-kick after the Stockley Park review. Ref Watch presenters Rob Jones, Sue Smith, and Stephen Warnock discussed the incident, and Gallagher remarked, “On the replay, I think he (Dubravka) pulls his arm up, which he does not have to, and that’s what causes the fall.” Warnock, a former player for Aston Villa and Liverpool, concurred.

Indeed, I believe this to be a penalty, he stated. In my opinion, the view from just behind is the greatest. This one right now makes it extremely evident to you. But that’s the reason the referee needs assistance.

At that point, you have to say, ‘Listen, you’re angle, you might not have noticed this, but we’re witnessing a very definite touch between the striker’s left boot and arm. You must examine this and then come to your own conclusion.”

Presenter Jones of Ref Watch was in sync with his studio guests. He continued: “It’s actually interesting that the arm goes down and then back up again to grab it, which would be to me a significant moment.” “I can understand the referee not giving it from this angle,” Gallagher retorted. However, if you watch the clip, you’ll see that Dubravka raises his arm, which is what gives Awoniyi trouble. When he arrives with penatly.

Making a case for the other side, Jones then contended that Awoniyi is disappearing from objective and would have minimal possibility scoring or keeping the ball in play from his situation on the field. Gallagher stated, There are various elements. It’s possible that the official told him, “You know I’ve seen it clearly, I’m happy,” and that he thought he had just passed the goalkeeper. Just drove the ball excessively far. However, this is why I believe it is a penalty.

After losing to Newcastle, Forest won’t win a league game in 2024 and will be 16th in the Premier League, just two points above the drop zone.
