QPR goalkeeper Alex Smithies would advocate goal-line technology to be extended to the Championship, echoing the words of his manager Ian Holloway.
Rangers were denied a goal at Blackburn when Conor Washington's header crossed the line but it was not given, infuriating the Hoops. It is the second time in five years Rangers have not been given a goal when the ball crossed the line, suffering a similar fate at Bolton in 2012
The Premier League introduced goal-line technology in 2013 and the implementation has been successful, with Championship clubs agreeing in principle to install the system in time for next season.
And Smithies believes the question is now how far it is expanded and who fits the bill.
He said: “If you look at the Premier League, it works well and is a quick process. It comes down to who is going to pay for it and how far down you go.
“It's the fairest way to do things whether it goes for you or against you. It'd be nice to see it in the Championship and had it have been, we'd have taken a point against Blackburn.”
Smithies stopped short of adopting a decision review system as there is in cricket or video replays and would like to see more study done on how the system would work.
He added: “You'd have to see how the technology works. If it's a fairer game and leads to better decisions that'd be fantastic.
“If it slows the game down it'd be a negative point. If they can bring something in that didn't disrupt the game and lead to the right decisions being made then I'm all for that.”
QPR make the trip up the M40 to Birmingham City on Saturday and they will be hoping to pile more misery onto Gianfranco Zola's out of form side.
Smithies explained: “There's been changes there which haven't gone as well as they'd have wanted but they'll be looking to put that right and we're looking for a big win.
“We played well against Huddersfield and we feel we could have nicked a point. We're showing signs we can be a top team and show no fear going to Birmingham.”
