Cisse could have been sent off - Pulis
- From the section Football
Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes stoppage-time goal scorer Papiss Cisse "could easily have been off the pitch" for two separate incidents in his side's 2-1 defeat at Newcastle.
Stoke opened the scoring in the second half after Chieck Tiote clattered Jonathan Walters in the box and he converted the spot kick, but Newcastle hit straight back through Yohan Cabaye's well-placed free-kick. Papiss Cisse then secured the points with a close-range finish in the 92nd minute.
Newcastle came from behind for the third straight home Premier League game. The defeat means Stoke stay 11th in the Premier League table.
