Watch a controversial incident involving Dundalk star Richie Towell sparked by a kick to the face of St Pat's player Jamie McGrath during the Airtricity League leading team's  4-1 win on Monday night. 

Soccer Republic analysts Damien Richardson and Alan Cawley give their view to Peter Collins on the clash, for which Towell and Pat's star Chris Forrester both received yellow cards.

Richardson said: "This was petulant, careless, but more than than it was irresponsible. This could have easily resulted in a bad facial injury. That is not part of the game. Toughness, tackle and injuries are part of the game. I know that is not like Richie Towell, but that is petulant."
