A controversial penalty was all that separated Bostik League South Central Division One leaders Hayes & Yeading United and second placed Bracknell Town on Saturday.

Unfortunately for the Robins, it was they who were on the end of the decision as the home striker appeared to fall over injured goalkeeper Mark Scott in a 1-0 win from the resulting penalty.

The video, which you can see below shows Scott saving at feet from Scott Donnelly, the number 7 turns to retrieve the ball and appears to fall between the prone goalkeeper and Bracknell defender Matty Day with Toby Little scoring the resulting spot kick.

Bracknell remain second in the table on 62 points after Marlow were held to a 2-2 draw at Hertford Town while Cheshunt also moved up to 62 points with a 2-1 win at Tooting & Mitcham United.
