No punishment for Wigan's Callum McManaman

Wigan forward Callum McManaman has escaped any retrospective action from the Football Association following his studs-up challenge on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara.

The FA confirmed that the incident was seen by at least one of the match officials - even though referee Mark Halsey was unsighted - meaning that retrospective action cannot be taken.

Haidara suffered potentially serious knee ligament damage after the challenge by 21-year-old McManaman, but no action was taken against the Wigan player during the match.
