Richard Keys has claimed that Morgan Gibbs-White’s goal for Nottingham Forest should have been chalked off for offside.
The 22-year-old sneaked in a rebound from Brennan Johnson’s shot against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
After a lengthy VAR check, the goal was deemed to be good, with referee John Brooks awarding the goal.
Gibbs-White has now scored twice in the Premier League and the three points from Saturday could prove vital.
The win saw Forest climb off the bottom of the table and go into the World Cup break in pretty decent form.
Keys was left unimpressed though and in his latest article, he criticised the officials for allowing the goal to stand.
He said in his latest blog post: “Forest’s goal shouldn’t have stood. Gibbs-White was offside from the original cross. I don’t need lines to see that.”
Keys’ latest blog post was all about the weekend’s VAR decisions, with it proving another ordinary week for the technology.
Forest were on the right end of a decision this week, however, although they might still have felt aggrieved had they not won.
Jesse Lingard was fouled in the first half when he was seemingly through on the Palace goal.
It seemed like a red card would be on the horizon but Tyrick Mitchell escaped with a caution for his cynical foul.

Death, taxes and Keys sticking the boot into Nottingham Forest.
For some reason, the pundit seems to have a real axe to grind with the Reds and it’s hard to remember him saying anything positive of late.
Nobody will care too much about what Keys has to say and it’s hardly like Forest weren’t deserving of some luck from VAR.
Forest must now start putting games to bed in a more emphatic fashion during the second half of the season.
Although they beat Palace, things could have been so much more convincing.
Things are looking rosier though and it’s nice to see Forest not heading into the international break at the bottom of the table.
Hopefully, Forest can continue upsetting Keys and win some more matches once the Prmeier League gets back underway.
