Liverpool striker Ngog admits it was never penalty

Liverpool striker David Ngog admits they didn't deserve the penalty won in last night's draw with Birmingham City.

The Reds were awarded a penalty when the French forward went to ground in the area with seemingly little or no contact from Lee Carsley who was nearby at the time.

"Maybe it wasn't a penalty but we deserved to score more goals," Reds boss Rafa Benitez said afterwards.

"We have had a lot of situations against us this year - and now one for us in a game where we played well and deserved more.

"I was asking David afterwards and he said maybe it wasn't a penalty."
