Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock was unhappy with the performance of referee Paul Taylor during the goalless draw with Birmingham.
Taylor sent off Nick Carle for a two-footed challenge on Cameron Jerome and denied Palace a penalty when Neil Danns appeared to be pulled back in the area by Keith Fahey just before the break.
"On the video it's a penalty - it's a pity the technology is not done at the time," said Warnock. "We don't think it was sending-off, we think he took the ball. But it was consistent with his performance, the sending-off."
He added: "It was a pity because I thought the lads did well. We let them have a couple of chances but we had a lot of chances as well.
"I'd like to say what I feel - but I better not."
