Baines has no complaints
Updated Sunday, 3rd April 2011
Everton defender Leighton Baines sympathised with match officials who ruled Jermaine Beckford's shot which bounced down off the crossbar had not crossed the goalline in the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa.
Replays were not 100% conclusive but did appear to suggest the ball had crossed the line and Everton had a right to feel aggrieved.
Villa played on and seconds later were 2-1 ahead, leaving Everton dependent on the 83rd-minute penalty awarded after Jean Makoun was adjudged to have fouled Phil Jagielka.
Goalscorer Baines said: "It was probably quite a tough call for the linesman given the speed we were attacking at and the speed the ball was travelling.
"It may have just crossed the line but I don't know how conclusive the replays have been.
"In the few seconds afterwards we were looking around hoping the referee was going to signal and give a goal and they went up the other end to add to the disappointment and get one themselves."
