Ollie Horgan wasn't the only one who couldn't fathom why his Finn Harps side didn't get awarded a penalty against St Patrick's Athletic last night at Richmond Park.

With the score 0-0, Babatunde Owolabi pounced on a Paddy Barrett mistake and going to ground under a challenge of Vitezslav Jaros, the St Pat's goalkeeper.

Horgan was yellow carded by referee Rob Harvey following the incident and the Harps players were still bemoaning the decision at half-time, where they trailed 1-0 before ending 4-1 to the Inchicore side. Owolabi took to Twitter this afternoon to voice his opinion on the matter.
