Sunderland’s Max Power celebrated his goal against Oxford United by knee-sliding in front of their manager Karl Robinson following a half-time bust-up.

Power’s 94th minute strike put the seal on Friday’s 3-1 win at the Stadium of Light, where there was something of a row in the tunnel during the interval.


According to Robinson, a member of the Black Cats’ staff head-butted his goalkeeper Jack Stevens, and he contacted the police about it after the game.

His claims have been greeted with a mix of scepticism and mirth by opposition fans who cite Robinson’s history of getting involved in such quarrels.
