Hull boss Grant McCann admitted his side got away with a penalty shout in their win against Sheffield Wednesday.

Wednesday were denied the 82nd-minute penalty by referee Andy Davies, who adjudged a foul by Lichaj on winger Jacob Murphy had been outside the box.

American international Lichaj made the admission to his manager Grant McCann, who said in the post-match press conference:

“Eric said he thought it was a penalty, it was inside the box.

“You know what? You get that bit of luck sometimes. When you put everything into it, you deserve that.
