GIF: The Massively Controversial Goal That Gave Bray Victory Over Bohs On Friday Night

Roy Keane once ruefully remarked that one could 'get away with nothing now' because Sky have 'bloody cameras everywhere'.

Dalymount Park was not clogged up with cameramen on Friday night and thus we are in the dark as to whether Friday's scoreline was just.

Bray Wanderers squeezed past Bohemians at Delymount Park on Friday and into the quarter-final of the FAI Cup. They were aided by a sturdily magnificent defensive display and a ludicrously brave call (right or wrong) by the assistant referee Robert Clarke for the only goal.

The feeling in the ground was that it was a bonkers call by the linesman. Keith Long was naturally beyond irate, while Mick Cooke shuffled almost guiltily in the post-match interview and said it wasn't him that gave the goal.


The assistant referee was a given a fairer hearing in the studio but they were still iffy about it.

Richie Sadlier and Trevor Crolly examined the cross from every possible angle (sadly that was only one) and failed to offer definitive proof of the assistant referee's correctness.


To the question of whether it was a goal, Richie gave a firm 'don't know' and pointed out that 'nothing we've shown here proves the assistant referee was wrong'.
