Lisbie In Penalty Controversy

Colchester ace Kevin Lisbie admitted the U`s were fortunate to get a penalty in yesterday`s 3-1 derby defeat at Ipswich, despite the fact that the in-form Mark Yeates went on to miss the kick in a weak effort that was saved.

Jamaican International Lisbie went down when one-on-one with Ipswich 'keeper Neil Alexander, who received a yellow card for the incident, before Irishman Yeates failed to convert the penalty as Town ran out clear winners.

Post-match, Lisbie told The Evening Gazette: "The goalkeeper did touch me but I don`t think it was a penalty."

Town fans may well feel justice was done.

Definite dive! I was fuming when he give it. He obviously went looking for one as well as a man advantage by taking the keeper on.

well, the save galvanised you to win the match, so it worked out. And it was right that the keeper only got a yellow, in that case.

Too true Matt I dont want to win like that, its one reason I hate thei Alan Lee he is such a cheat.

Bad memories last season - he seemed to be going down all the time in the last derby. But we got a lucky pen that dau too, and Iwelumo did his magic jig... *sigh*
Matt_Us
Dive or no-dive, the ref thought it was a pen. the laws of the game state that the last man has to go, why didn't he?
StevieG Col U
If he thought it was a pen, that must mean he thoight it was denial of a clear goalscoring opportunity. In which case, as the keeper brought him down, you are quite right!
