Palace receive apology

<strong>FOOTBALL:</strong> Referees&rsquo; chief Keith Hackett has apologised to Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock over their disallowed goal in Saturday&rsquo;s 1-0 defeat by Bristol City. Freddie Sears&rsquo; strike was ruled out by match official Rob Shoebridge despite the ball clearly crossing the line and bouncing back out off the stanchion.<br /><br />Warnock claimed his side had been &ldquo;cheated&rdquo; afterwards but Hackett said: &ldquo;You would hope they have spotted that particular incident. <br /><br />&ldquo;I have spoken to Neil Warnock this morning and apologised to him on behalf of the match officials.&rdquo;
