Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez believes Newcastle´s last-minute penalty winner sums up the Cottagers´ season as the Londoners will now spend a week in the bottom three.

Rookie defender Elliot Omozusi´s 19th birthday was ruined when he was adjudged to have fouled Alan Smith in the box and Joey Barton made no mistake from the spot to give Newcastle a rare away-day success.

Sanchez said: "The penalty was symptomatic of our season. I keep saying it but I think it is true - we keep playing well right to the moment when we lose."
