Palace wronged at Ashton Gate

Last updated : 16 August 2009 By Palace Reporter
In the 30th minute Freddie Sears pounced to put Palace 1 up. No argument, no controversy. He was not offside, did not foul anyone and it was a perfectly good goal. The ball cannoned out of the frame of the goal when it hit the bar that keeps the net on the floor in the rear of the goal

Palace celebrated. Bristol City looked disconsolate.

And then the impossible. The referee went and spoke to the linesman and they awarded a goal kick. They did not believe the ball went into the goal.

It ranks as a cock up of the highest order.

To rub salt in the wounds Bristol City scored an 89th minute winner.
