O'Brien upset at penalty decision

Bradford City

Bradford City defender Luke O'Brien believes he should have had a penalty in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury.

The 20-year-old told BBC Radio Leeds he felt he was upended in the Shrewsbury penalty area but referee Russell Booth ignored the protests for a spot-kick.

"When I went to hit it he's come in the side of me and then the winger took me out from behind and the referee said I didn't have control of the ball.

"Personally I thought it was a penalty but there were some odd decisions."

O'Brien felt his side should have won but remains happy with their points haul as they stay third in the League Two table.

"I go out there to keep clean sheets and it's four on the bounce now.

"We're happy with the point but we were the better side."
