Kit Symons was furious after Hugo Rodallega’s late winner at Millwall was wrongly disallowed for offside.

The Colombian striker lashed home clinically and began to celebrate believing he had ended Fulham’s barren run without a win, but he was denied by an offside flag. Television replays showed the Fulham striker was level with the home defence and Symons were unhappy afterwards.

Kit Symons said: “In my opinion it should have stood. I’ve watched it again. Hugo’s level with the man marking him but I think the other defender is probably a yard deeper.

“The linesman’s flag went straight up and the referee had to go off that but it was the wrong call. These things happen, but it’s disappointing as it would have capped off a fantastic day. A clean sheet away from home and all three points would have been perfect. It wasn’t quite to be but it was hard-fought with a lot of endeavour and effort.”

“It was probably about the right result in the end,” added Symons. “They had the better possession and a lot of pressure in the first half but I thought we were the team pushing in the second half. I was disappointed not to get the win but a point in this division is precious so we’ll take that.

“I thought we looked very dangerous on the counter-attack; maybe we just lacked that extra little bit of quality on a couple of occasions that could have earned us a couple of goals.”
