BRADFORD City boss Gary Bowyer believes Oxford United's controversial injury-time winner fuels the argument for VAR to be used at all levels of professional football.

Jamie Mackie's 94th-minute winner on Saturday earned the U's a vital 1-0 victory in a crunch clash towards the bottom of Sky Bet League One.

But the match descended into farce as referee Andy Davies ruled out the strike and awarded a goal kick – which started the move leading to the goal – to be retaken.

Bradford’s players appealed for a number of things – a moving ball, players in the area, a corner and a penalty.

It led to fans waiting more than four minutes before the goal was allowed to stand.

And Bowyer believes VAR video technology, which will be used in the Premier League next season after a number of trials this campaign, should be rolled out across the entire English Football League.

The Bantams boss told the Telegraph & Argus: “I saw a couple of the Oxford lads signalling to the stand ‘VAR’.

“What’s that all about?

“They wanted someone to check it for the game – but it’s not here.

“But that’s where VAR has got to come in.

“It’s designed for moments like this, penalties, goals, whether the ball has crossed the line. It’s just absolute carnage.

“You’ll be talking about it forever but we’ve got to make sure that we get over it very quickly."

United defender Curtis Nelson was among those to signal for VAR.

Boss Karl Robinson added: "No (we don't have it here). Nelse watches too much Premier League football and too much Champions League football."
