Huddersfield’s Danny Schofield: “I’ve seen the incident a number of times from a number of different angles and it’s a tough one to take because we feel it was a goal that was not awarded. When I went to speak to him at the end. I was very emotional and he was pointing at his watch, because he was going off goal-line technology, so it’s difficult to pin the blame on the ref because it was down to the technology and I’m not sure if he can overrule that. It would certainly take a brave man to do so.”
Blackpool’s Michael Appleton: “I’ve not looked back at it and I’ve done that purposely, but I’ve been told it was potentially over the line and that’s not great from their point of view. I’ve been in the game a hell of a long time, though, and I know these types of things can happen. They have happened against me before and I know the club were on the receiving end of one last season against QPR.”
