Yorkie 'cheat' row (8 Feb)
Dwight Yorke was branded a cheat by the Derby manager after escaping with a yellow card for the tackle to Derby defender Dean Yates which left him needing x-rays on his leg, calling for his dismissal for the clumsy challenge. 

Derby boss Jim Walker was angry that Yorke was still on the pitch to score the winner after he felt Yorke should have gone, leaving Derby's 100% home record still intact. 

Yorke was amazed at the uproar following his challenge but refused to get into an argument about it and was led away by Villa coach Alan Evans
