STEVE PUTS REF ON SPOT.

STEVE CLARKE risked an FA fine as Reading's winless home run stretched to seven games.

The Scot was furious that referee David Coote denied his side a late penalty after Paul McShane was bundled over in the box.

And seething Royals boss Clarke (below) said: "It was a penalty. If that's anywhere else on the pitch it's a foul when a player jumps into you like that.

"The referee chose not to give it. For the life of me I don't know why.

"But seeing his performance, maybe I do understand."

Newly-promoted Dons had the busier keeper in David Martin, who said: "We just want to punch our weight and we will give anyone a game on our day.

"We've got to keep that mentality going all the way through the season now."

MOTM DAVID MARTIN
