Ian Holloway was keener to talk about last week than the match he just witnessed on Saturday.

Rangers had lost 2-1 to Huddersfield, but the seeds of that defeat were sown at Blackburn last week, the gaffer insists.

Midway through the second half against Rovers, Conor Washington headed against the bar. The ball bounced down and over the line, but the goal wasn't awarded.

No goal-line technology in the Championship means the second tier is where Manchester United and Tottenham were in January 2005.

Pedro Mendes hoofed high and hopeful in the 89th minute for Spurs at Old Trafford, caught United keeper Roy Carroll off his line, who dropped the ball over it so the world and his wife saw a legitimate goal except the only person who mattered - the linesman.

By 2013, the Premier League had technology, the Championship still awaits. Needless to say, Ollie thinks its waited long enough.

"I'm talking about last week, how can that be swept under the goddamn carpet?" he asked.

"Who is going to stand up and be counted and say this is wrong?

Over? Conor Washington beats Jason Steele but no goal

"I'm asking every football supporter around the country, if that was you how would you feel?

"I know why it changed in the Premier League because Tottenham went mental with that goal at Manchester United. Tottenham wouldn't have it and wouldn't leave it alone.

"They much have spent millions actually pushing for this goal-line technology, and if we had it we would've scored a goal last week. So when is logic going to come in? I don't get it, that's all I'm saying."

The manager facing another task at Birmingham on Saturday believes the Washington 'goal' went deep and cost his side vital points that has sucked Hoops back into the relegation mire.

"We scored a perfectly legitimate goal, that would have changed the whole course of last week, and against Huddersfield might have been a different score, because I wouldn't have had to pick them up so much."
