No Premier League game given to penalty row ref Robert Madley

Robert Madley, the match official at the centre of a penalty controversy in the 3-3 draw between Swansea and Stoke, has not been given a Barclays Premier League game to referee this weekend.

Madley decided Wayne Routledge had handled in the penalty area during stoppage time and Stoke equalised from the spot.

Afterwards Swansea manager Michael Laudrup claimed Madley owed him and his players an apology.

However, referee Andre Marriner, who was criticised by West Brom for awarding Chelsea a late penalty in the last round of top-flight action, has been put in charge of a game - Fulham v Swansea on Saturday.
