Keith Hackett is adamant Andy Madley eventually made the right call by not awarding Aston Villa a penalty against Fulham after Mario Lemina’s challenge on Ollie Watkins.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-FIFA and Premier League referee was satisfied by Madley’s decision despite him only seeing one angle of the incident on the pitchside monitor.
Madley pointed to the spot after Lemina and Watkins came together challenging for a loose ball at the end of the first half.

However, he was told to review the incident on the pitchside monitor and eventually overturned his decision.
And while Hackett admitted a second angle would help, the right decision was still made.
