Cork City boss John Caulfield reckons his side were denied a penalty in the dying embers of last night's 1-0 defeat to Dundalk FC at Oriel Park.

Conor McCarthy's late shot appeared to strike the hand of home defender Seán Hoare - although he knew little about it - in the area, only for referee Paul McLaughlin to wave play on - a decision which Caulfield highlighted in the match's aftermath.

Dundalk had earlier had a penalty claim of their own waved away when Conor McCormack appeared to shunt Seán Murray to the ground.

Michael Duffy scored the only goal, shortly before half-time, as the Lilywhites made it seven matches unbeaten.
