Fulham boss Sanchez "sad" for Omozusi

Fulham teenager Elliot Omozusi was sent-off in injury-time of yesterday's 3-1 defeat of Reading.

It seemed the 18-year-old made no contact with his tackle right at the end but referee Mark Clattenburg reached for a yellow, a second booking after the youngster barged over Stephen Hunt for his first caution early in the second half.

But Cottagers boss Lawrie Sanchez, a scourge of referees often, spared Clattenburg after the Newcastle official's poor performance in the Merseyside derby two weeks ago.

The Fulham boss said: "I just asked the ref at the end what the card was for but I haven't been able to see the incident myself yet.

"I was sad for the player because he had done well in only his second game and is now suspended for Liverpool next week."
