Lambert bemoans penalty denial

Published Add your comment

Colchester boss Paul Lambert admitted he was disappointed his side were not awarded a penalty as they lost 3-0 to Scunthorpe.

The Iron went ahead through Gary Hooper in the first half and the same player doubled their advantage with 30 minutes to play before Henri Lansbury completed the victory although Lambert felt his side were denied a definite penalty.

Lambert said: "In the end we were well beaten but it might have been so very different if we had got the penalty."

He added: "I have just seen it on the match DVD and it really was a stonewall penalty. If we had got that when we were still only a goal down then it might have made all the difference.

"I thought we had done well in the first half creating a few chances. But after the penalty we then conceded a second goal which was as a result of some poor defending by us and that was the end of our hopes of getting something from the game."
