James Milner suffered penalty frustration again playing away to Albion – more than 17 years on.

The veteran midfielder took to Twitter to raise doubts over VAR after the 400th league start of his career ended in a draw.

He appeared to be suggesting referee Stuart Attwell did not make a clear and obvious error in not awarding Albion a penalty when Andy Robertson caught Danny Welbeck in added time.

Attwell pointed to the spot after checking the pitchside monitor.

The Liverpool star tweeted: “It’s ‘clear and obvious’ we need a serious discussion about VAR. Sure I’m not alone in feeling like they are falling out of love with the game in its current state.”

Milner made his debut for Swindon, on loan from Leeds, at Withdean way back in September 2003.



His team led twice but had to settle for a 2-2 draw as Darius Henderson converted a spot kick in the 75th minute following a foul on Leon Knight.

Milner, who was 17 at the time, was making only the second league start of his career and went close to a late winner.

Gary Hart scored Albion’s first goal and Sam Parkin got both for Swindon.

Milner started Saturday’s game in midfield but switched to right-back as part of a half-time reshuffle.
