CRYSTAL Palace defender Scott Dann was left to rue what might have been had team-mate James McArthur's goal at Manchester City stood.
The defender watched the Scottish international place a header into the bottom corner, only to see the assistant referee with his flag up.
McArthur was two yards onside when the cross from Yannick Bolasie was played, and Dann believes it may have been a different game at 2-1.
"James' goal was two yards onside, I don't know how officials make decisions like that," he told the Advertiser.
"It was an obvious goal, and I think when you go to places like Man City, you need decisions like that to go for you.
"We scored a good goal and it was hard enough with decisions like that. It didn't help us.
"When you're two goals down, it might have got us back in the game."
