Chris Coleman has joined the growing number of managers calling for video replays to be introduced in the Premiership.

Coleman was baffled by ref Graham Poll’s failure to award Fulham a penalty during his side’s 3-2 defeat at Chelsea yesterday.

Poll signalled for a corner despite Blues skipper John Terry clearly blocking a shot with his hands in the penalty area.

Coleman refuses to condemn match officials for making mistakes but admits the time is right to give them a helping hand.

He said: “Referees need help – they need video evidence because the game is played at such a pace.

“It’s nuts that referees do not get more help to clear things up.

“A lot of people think we would be opening up a can of worms but we wouldn’t – there would be a happy medium we could strike.”
