"No-one in the stadium could say Danny Murphy dived and everyone in the stadium expected a penalty," said Jol.
"A few years ago, the ball was a metre over the line and they did not give it. Maybe the linesman was not quick enough that time.
"But tonight the referee was there in line. It needed a brave decision because it was either a dive and he should book someone or he has to give Carrick a red card. I don't want to see Carrick sent off but it needed a brave decision and I think it was a penalty kick."
