Glory were awarded a penalty by the VAR late in the first half when City's Osama Malik tackled youngster Jacob Italiano late inside the box.

Initially, referee Daniel Elder awarded a goal kick, but after a lengthy delay, the VAR intervened decisively, with a penalty awarded and Malik handed a red card.

To further City's pain, they had a VAR referral when Bart Schenkeveld appeared to be pulled down from a cross by Shane Lowry but it was declined causing a stir.
