Can someone please explain to me how Eastleigh should have had a penalty tonight?

Didn't these TV pundits clearly see that the Eastleigh forward was illegally blocking off Macca, preventing him from kicking the ball, obstructing him. Hence the game was restarted with a free kick to Grimsby...

Exactly. Free kick to Town for obstruction.

Those pundits are terrible. It's why the mute button/kettle was invented.

Dangerous play? How is that dangerous? Not arguing,  Just asking...

I thought the ref was the best I can remember seeing since we've been in the conference.  

Serial thread killer.

Obstruction I would say. Shame Big Chris isn't on hand to give ref view. Naive from Macca but we should've had free kick before incident moved to that push.

Agree with all the above. Straightforward blocking of the keeper trying to kick it out. No controversy until the pundits tried to make one.

Thought the ref was decent enough. Gave quite a few soft free kicks to Eastleigh but nothing to get too angry over. We've had far, far worse.

I thought McKeown was daft to shove their player. Even though he was being obstructed, it was a risky move and you don't want to give the referees a reason to make a decision if you don't need to. Thought Disley could have been penalised near the death as well, but probably just outside the box and the ref didn't give it anyway.

At the other end, LJL should have had two penalties in a minute not far from the end! He was firstly tripped in the box, then a few minutes later was clearly shoved in the back by their defender as he took that shot which brought out an excellent save from their keeper.
