Anderson dived - Martin

Norwich defender Russell Martin has accused Nottingham Forest winger Paul Anderson of cheating to earn his side's penalty at the City Ground on Saturday. The Canaries had to come from behind to earn a 1-1 draw after Forest opened the scoring with a spot-kick following Martin's challenge on Anderson. Dexter Blackstock scored the 35th-minute penalty, only for Andrew Crofts to equalise three minutes later. But Martin insists Anderson dived. "For me it is cheating," he told BBC Radio Norfolk. "It`s not even gamesmanship. He touched the ball and dived. There was no contact. "It has got to be stamped out of the game. If I had made a bit of contact and he had gone down easily, that is fair play and gamesmanship to me. But when there is no contact at all? "He has touched the ball, it has gone five yards and he dived into me. You could call that gamesmanship, but not for me."
