HERE’S HOW CAMERA CAN SETTLE DISPUTE
GOAL-LINE technology is set to be introduced in the Championship next season – but the critics of why it has taken so long to come to fruition were given further ammunition in midweek.
Fulham were convinced winger Neeskens Kebano’s powerful first-half shot against Leeds crossed the line after smashing down from the underside of the crossbar, but the officials weren’t moved.
It would have put Fulham level and given them the opportunity to have gone on to win the game.
As it was, they needed a Tom Cairney special in the dying seconds to earn a point against their play-off rivals.
Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic said: “We scored a legal goal, but the referee didn’t see this situation very well.
“We cannot complain about the referee. It’s human error. He can make a mistake, but it’s a very expensive mistake.”
Only last month, fellow Londoners QPR were also left complaining about a ‘goal’ not being given when Conor Washington’s header in a 1-0 defeat at Blackburn was ignored by the officials.
IS IT? It certainly looks like Kebano’s “goal” has crossed the line from this angle
