Brian McDermott certain over Leeds United penalty claim

Brian McDermott says that Leeds United's defeat to Newcastle United could have been different had his side been awarded a "certain penalty".

Leeds United manager Brian McDermott has no doubts that his side should have been awarded a penalty against Newcastle United on Wednesday.

The Championship outfit were dumped out of the Capital One Cup third round after goals either side of half time from Papiss Cisse and Yoan Gouffran gave the Magpies a 2-0 win at St James' Park.

However, McDermott feels that the game could have been different had his team been given a spot kick before Newcastle bagged their second.

"Their [first] goal, from their point of view, was a little bit of quality on the left-hand side and maybe we needed to do better in that situation, but it was a good header, and their second goal was a great finish," McDermott told reporters.

"Having said that, at 1-0 Matt Smith was bundled over in the penalty area and I think because he is a big lad, the ref didn't give it. But it was a certain penalty, there's no doubt about that."

Newcastle will host Manchester City in the fourth round of the competition.
