RUFC - Evans On The Goal That Wasn't

RUFC - Evans On The Goal That Wasn't

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans is ruing the fact that his side scored a goal today that wasn't given.

A header from skipper Ian Sharps looked to most people in the New York Stadium as if it had travelled well over the line when the Barnet defender hacked it out.

'Oh it's a goal,' the Millers Boss told MillersPlayer after the defeat by Barnet, 'and, as we've said before goals change games.'

If Referee Andy D'Urso, who was followed round the pitch for sixty-eight minutes by Bees player/coach Edgar Davids, had given that goal then it would have meant an equaliser for the Millers and, who knows, it could well have been a different game after that.

I was sat in the Family Stand, on the side of the ground, and it looked like the ball had crossed the line to me while others in the North Stand also confirmed it was over the line - but the two people who matter, the referee and linesman didn't agree. Steve Evans even says, in his after match interview, that a couple of Barnet defenders told him the ball had crossed the line.

Time for goal line technology?
