Newcastle boss Pardew upset with Brighton's Lopez after Ameobi dismissal

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew was upset with Shola Ameobi's dismissal in their FA Cup defeat to Brighton.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew was upset with Shola Ameobi's dismissal in their FA Cup defeat to Brighton.

Newcastle will now be missing Ameobi against Norwich after today's captain was sent off for receiving two yellow cards, the second for an innocuous tackle on David Lopez.

Pardew was scathing of Lopez, who clearly made the most of the incident.

"I was disappointed with the opposing player because the foul was nothing, you can see that," he said.

"The player takes a look up and starts rolling around. That was disappointing from a fellow professional player because Shola didn't catch him any shape or form."
