The Newcastle boss admitted that there was "no doubt" that his side had conceded late on in Monday's game at Goodison Park and led calls for goal-line technology

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has admitted that Victor Anichebe's second-half header during his side's 2-2 draw with Everton on Monday night should have counted as a goal.

The 51-year-old was serving a touchline ban during the game but revealed his pitchside analyst had told him the whole ball had crossed the line, despite referee Mike Jones dismissing appeals at the time.

And the Englishman acknowledged the decision would have significantly changed the game before underlining his desire for goal-line technology to be introduced.

"My analyst said to me it was over the line," he told reporters.

"These decisions are game-changers, there is no doubt about it and I am sure David will be very aggrieved.

"I have been saying all along that technology must come in and it has cost Everton a crucial goal."

Everton boss David Moyes was also critical of the officials following the game at Goodison Park, after seeing a Marouane Fellaini effort incorrectly ruled out, this time for offside.
