Leon Barnett's controversial goal denied Leeds United victory in a 1-1 draw with Norwich City.
The defender's second-half header at Carrow Road was allowed to stand despite an apparent foul by Grant Holt on Leeds' goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel in the build up to the goal.
Max Gradel gave Leeds the initiative in the 13th minute, scoring after referee Mike Russell played a clever advantage following a foul on Luciano Becchio.
The winger almost scored again towards the end of the first half but Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy tipped his shot from 20 yards over the crossbar.
Norwich saw plenty of possession but relatively few chances until the second half when Alex Bruce came within inches of conceding an own goal with a header which hit a post.
Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel then denied Chris Martin with an excellent low save but Norwich claimed a point on 65 minutes through Barnett's debatable header.
