"I took the ball on my chest and he said himself it was a penalty. He punched the ball away.

"He also said to a few of our players during the game that it was a penalty. I spoke to the centre-back, Cameron Carter-Vickers, and he said it was a penalty as well. I said: "I know. I saw it with my own eyes".

"The referee was there and didn't see it, but the linesman had clear vision to it.

"It is just unfortunate we didn't get it because it would have been a good time to get the penalty because there weren't many chances at both ends and anything could have happened if we had got back to 2-1.

"It could have brought belief back to the team and we could maybe have got something."
