Everton boss Martinez upset Baines penalty appeal waved away

Everton boss Roberto Martinez felt they were denied a clear penalty after their 0-0 draw at Cardiff City.

Leighton Baines was bundled over by Cardiff midfielder Gary Medel in the first-half inside the hosts' penalty area.

Martinez said: "From the angle I was at it looked a real clear, stonewall penalty.

"Leighton said it was a clear penalty. He was trying to get into the box and there was a challenge where he doesn't get the ball. It's as clear a penalty you will ever see.

"The last thing I would do is come out and just blame the referee for not getting the three points, but it was a key moment. The first goal would have been significant in this type of game."
