EDDIE Howe revealed Cherries had received confirmation which stated they should have been awarded a second penalty during their 1-1 draw at Leicester.

The Dorset club was sent a report from officials which admitted referee Lee Probert had made the wrong call in allowing play to continue after Charlie Daniels had been pushed over by Wilfred Ndidi inside the box.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “In the referees’ report, they admitted it should have been given. They have analysed the decision and said it should have been a penalty, so what more can we do?

“It was incredible because, at the time, I had a great view of it and it looked an absolute certainty.”

Probert had pointed to the spot in the first half after Marc Albrighton felled Joshua King, the Norwegian picking himself up to slot home the opener.

“The fact it would have been the second penalty in the game maybe went against us,” added Howe.

“I’m saying that was probably going through his mind, that’s maybe the reason why we didn’t get it. But it is very difficult for me to put words in Lee Probert’s mouth and I am not trying to do that.

“I felt a little bit disappointed we didn’t get it. What more can I say? I’ve got to be diplomatic.”
