Wolves striker Doyle furious with match officials after Newcastle defeat

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle is convinced the match officials cost them their defeat to Newcastle United.

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle is convinced the match officials cost them their defeat to Newcastle United.

The Republic of Ireland striker was steaming after referee Mark Halsey failed to award a blatant first-half penalty.

And even more angry when his injury-time 'equaliser' was flagged by a linesman who ruled the ball had already gone out of play.

Doyle moaned: "We should have had a penalty and I had an equaliser disallowed, so it's tough to take. I've seen a replay of my disallowed goal and it wasn't out of play.

"I don't know whether the linesman was in a good position but he was wearing a baseball cap and looking directly into the sun — but it wasn't over the line."
