Players Felt It Was In - Johnson

Lee Johnson admitted he was not sure if Bristol City’s last gasp ‘goal’ that never was should have been given or not, after seeing his side go down 3-2 at Wolves.

Having fallen behind inside three minutes, City held a half-time lead after a quick-fire double from Tammy Abraham and Aden Flint.

But Helder Costa volleyed the hosts level and Flint was penalised for handball six minutes from time, prompting Ivan Cavaleiro to win a dramatic game from the penalty spot.

Still there was to be one last twist, as Marlon Pack’s header looked to have crossed the line before it was hacked clear just as the referee blew for full time.

“I don’t know,” was Johnson’s honest verdict, when asked if the ball was over the line. “But I think the players felt it was – one hundred per cent – from being there live,” he added.

“It’s really difficult to see. I’ve had a look back at the DVD, it’s tight and I’m not sure.

“It shows we need technology or video replays in the Championship because it’s such an important league.

“But we’ve got to make sure that, at 2-1 up, we close up the game a lot better than we did.

“I don’t have any sympathy for us – we’re not going to feel sorry for ourselves and lick our wounds because we’ve got to be better.

“As well as we played at times in the game, we also had the potential to concede four or five. Frankie has kept us in it on more than one occasion.

“We just need a little bit of physical strength and communication behind the ball. If you can’t be an option, be protection – we’re too easy to cut through at the moment.”
