Fulham goal should have stood – Symons

Fulham boss Kit Symons believes the officials were wrong to rule out Hugo Rodallega’s late goal at Millwall.

The Colombian striker netted six minutes from time but had his celebrations cut short after the assistant referee ruled him offside.

It meant Fulham had to settle for a goalless draw, their first away league point since the win at Leeds in mid-December.

Millwall boss Ian Holloway said the decision was correct, saying the linesman had got it “spot on”.

However, Symons said he had watched a replay and felt Rodallega was onside.

He said: “In my opinion that was a good goal which should have stood.

“Hugo’s level with the man marking him and I think the other defender’s probably a yard deeper, but that’s my opinion.

“I just think it was the wrong call by the linesman, but these things happen.

“It would have capped off a fantastic day if we’d come away with all three points but it wasn’t quite to be.”

Symons was happy with the result, which keeps the Whites in 19th, five points above the Championship relegation zone.

He added: “I thought we were the team pushing second half.

“I’m disappointed not to get the win but a point in this division is precious, so we’ll take that.”
