Warnock unhappy as Leeds denied ‘phantom’ goal at Portsmouth

Leeds boss Neil Warnock claimed Ross McCormack was denied an obvious goal in Saturday's goalless Championship draw at Portsmouth as television replays appeared to show his 54th minute effort had crossed the line.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock claimed Ross McCormack was denied an obvious goal in Saturday's goalless Championship draw at Portsmouth as television replays appeared to show his 54th minute effort had crossed the line.

Having watched the incident back after the final whistle, Warnock was convinced McCormack's effort crossed the line.

He said: "McCormack's shot was a metre over the line. It's embarrassing really when you see it. It's not even close.

"Apparently the television pictures here are not so good, but if they want to borrow ours, they'll see it's not even close.

"I've asked the official and he said he was in line about 12 yards away. He obviously didn't see it.

"But in fairness, there was a certain handball against us in the first half and that was the same linesman. The sun was obviously causing a problem out there."
