Finn Harps players and management were left furious with the awarding of a goal for Longford Town this evening at Finn Park.
Dylan Grimes struck a wonderful effort off the underside of Mark Anthony McGinley’s crossbar, which rebounded back into play. Aaron Robinson stooped to head back toward goal and Dobbs, looking offside, fired in anyways.
Alan Sherlock, the nearside assistant referee, flagged for offside, only to discuss the matter with referee Ben Connolly, who overruled him and awarded the goal.
Tunde Owolabi has since equalised and it's 1-1 at the break.
