VIDEO: Controversial goal sees Bohemians take the lead at Finn Park

Finn Harps trail Bohemians 2-0 at half-time at Finn Park in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division with the opening goal causing quite a stir.

Promise Omochere glanced the visitors in front in controversial circumstances on 34 minutes. Harps midfielder Will Seymore was caught by a high foot in his own penalty as he tried to clear from a corner and went down.

Referee Paul McLaughlin waved play on and with Seymore initially playing the visitors onside, play continued and a Georgie Kelly’s shot was saved by Gerard Doherty and from the follow-up Ali Cooke’s stab at goal was cleared off the line by Shane McEleney. Omochere, looking suspiciously offside, glanced home Keith Buckley’s ball back in. Harps were incensed and Seymore hobbled off the field to be replaced by Mark Coyle.

Georgie Kelly, from Tooban, doubled the lead from the penalty on 42 minutes.
