Goal-line Technology: Officials missed two goals – David Moyes


Everton manager David Moyes insisted two controversial decisions denied his side victory against Newcastle United at Goodison Park.

In a thrilling 2-2 draw, Everton substitute Victor Anichebe saw play waved on by referee Mike Jones despite his header crossing the line – and Moyes also complained an earlier strike from Marouane Fellaini was wrongly ruled out for offside.

Newcastle counterpart Alan Pardew agreed and Moyes said: “There are two goals missed and we can’t get them back. I had a word with the officials but I was not in there ranting and raving.

“I said ‘you have missed two goals’ but what can I do about it? We played very well and should have won the game deservedly but didn’t.”

Substitute Demba Ba scored twice for Newcastle, including a last-minute equaliser, after Leighton Baines and Anichebe had struck for Everton.

Everton’s complaints, at least in terms of Anichebe’s ‘goal’, could soon be a thing of the past with Premier League committed to introducing goal-line technology “as soon as practically possible”, with the start of the 2013-14 season mentioned as a possible start date.
