Anyone got linkage of this,

Reading's opener, which has been officially recorded as an own goal by Eustace, will go down as one of the strangest goals ever.

Stephen Hunt whipped in a corner which was contested by Noel Hunt and Eustace at the near post.

The ball bounced over the line - four yards wide of the goal - before being hooked back into play by Noel Hunt.

Reading's Andre Bikey headed back towards goal, where keeper Scott Loach made a save, but the linesman had already flagged - for a goal.

Probably won't be footage of it untill later on today. Someone will record the Championship highlights in the morning and upload it to youtube without a doubt.

Sounds like a ridiculous goal though lol.

God that's ridiculous. That linesman should seriously be shot. What does he even see? That's an absolute travesty of a decision, probably the worst one ever. Like everyone on youtbue has seemed to say, if we ever needed proof of needing video technology for goals (not that that scenario should ever have required it) its that event and the sheer stupidity of the linesman.

Awful decision. The link above is down can't find a good HQ one. Best I can find is...
