Brentford defender Yoann Barbet admitted that he thought Conor Washington's header had crossed the line in the Bees' 3-1 win over QPR.
Barbet, who scored the opener against Rangers, headed the striker's effort clear but it looked as if a goal should have stood.
Referee James Adcock and his assistants, though, decided that it was no goal and the Frenchman was not going to argue about the decision, citing the lack of goal-line technology in the Championship.
The Brentford defender said: “Honestly, I think the ball was in, because I was inside the goal. But it touched the crossbar and I don't know. It's not my fault if there's no goal-line technology.”
Next season, there will be the technology available to match officials in the second tier.
It's the second time that QPR have been involved in a 'ghost goal' debate after Washington's effort against Blackburn was ignored, despite the ball crossing the line.
