Controversy as draw sends Warrenpoint down
- From the section Football
Warrenpoint Town are relegated after a controversial penalty decision leads to a last-gasp Dungannon Swifts equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Milltown.
Stephen Hughes scored the opener for Town and they would have retained their Premiership status if they held on to win.
However, referee Ross Dunlop awarded a spot-kick deep into injury-time after Warrenpoint's Jordan Dane collided with opponent Cormac Burke - Andrew Mitchell followed up to score after Jonathan Parr kept out Ryan Harpur's penalty.
Town boss Barry Gray criticised the penalty award after the game while Swifts manager Rodney McAree also gave his thoughts on the incident.
