Opposition view

Mark Hughes felt our winning penalty was harsh on Micah Richards, who was judged to have held Fraizer Campbell.

Robbie Keane beat Shay Given from the spot to secure a 2-1 win and keep us in with a chance of Europe while at the same time ending City's hopes.

"We're disappointed with the decision, it's a poor decision and one that hurt us," Hughes said.

"It was a speculative ball that has gone comfortably to Shay Given and the lad was never closer than 15 yards away from it.

"With five minutes to go we had a real chance to get the winner. We could have been in the mix for Europe."
