It was over the line and it was handball.

Our pictures taken from the cameras around Portman Road clearly show that Shumi'sclose range effort in Saturday's goalless draw against QPR was handled by Matthew Connolly.

The Rangers' defender was also at least a foot behind the line when he made contact with the ball but referee Paul Armstrong waved away Blues' appeals for a goal - and a penalty.

Town skipper Jason De Vos was close to the incident and has no doubts it was a 'goal', telling Ipswich World:"It cost us two points.

"The ball was over the line, a good foot over the line. If we had video technology in the game, it would have shown that.

"We've already lost two points at Burnley when we had a legitimate goal from Pablo ruled out when he was clearly onside and behind the ball.

"Those four points could prove very costly at the end of the season.

"I don't know why we won't bring video into football. It will make refereeing easier and that can only be good for the game.

"I spoke to the referee and linesman about the ball that was over the line and the linesman said he couldn't see it. So why don't we use the technology to help these guys out." Official Site
