Dendoncker admits Wolves frustration: Leeds pen never there

Leander Dendoncker felt hard done by after Wolves' draw with Leeds United on Sunday.

The Molineux outfit lead all the way until the 94th minute when Rodrigo converted from the penalty spot after Nelson Semedo's foul on Joe Gelhardt.

"It was a tough game," Dendoncker told the Express & Star.

"We scored after 10 minutes and automatically you go back a little bit.

"We struggled to maintain the ball and then obviously we know Leeds play with a lot of energy and they went attacking. Especially in the first half they were dangerous.

"I don't think they were that dangerous in the second half, I think we controlled them.

"Obviously it's tough when you defend the entire game and try to keep the good result because it would have been the fourth win in a row. You get a last minute goal against you and it's really hard to take.

"We just have to keep going and look at the next game against Everton.

"We have time to recover now and hopefully we'll be ready."

When asked for his view on the penalty, Dendoncker added: "I didn't think it was a penalty, I think he barely touched him.

"But it's in the box so you it's always dangerous when a player goes down. We tried to convince the referee it was not (a penalty)."
