Ryan Giggs is making no apologies for the controversial penalty decision that allowed Manchester United to claim three precious points in the Barclays Premier League title battle.

Despite dominating Monday night's encounter with Fulham, United failed to make their pressure tell and ended up enduring a nervous final few minutes as the visitors poured forward. They also required a massive slice of luck as referee Michael Oliver failed to spot Michael Carrick bundling Danny Murphy over in the box a minute from time.

Fulham manager Martin Jol grumbled at Oliver's failure to make a "brave decision", but Giggs said: "We conceded a penalty against Newcastle (in November) that wasn't. They tend to even themselves out during a season. Perhaps that is what has happened here."
