Newcastle boss Chris Hughton was left disappointed that Sheffield Wednesday's equaliser was allowed to stand following the 2-2 draw at Hillsborough.

Kevin Nolan and Shola Ameobi cancelled out Luke Varney's opener before James O'Connor levelled matters, but Hughton felt there had been a foul on Magpies goalkeeper Steve Harper.

"It was most definitely a foul for their equaliser, but it wasn't one of our better performances," said Hughton. "We have no given right to win any game and we faced a spirited Sheffield Wednesday side."

He adde: "We didn't start the game well and gave away a poor goal. I think it's disappointing, whenever you lead in a game, if you don't go on and finish the job off."
