BLUES boss Jim Magilton was understandably livid as Ipswich were denied their first away victory since last March at Turf Moor last night.
Referee Clive Webster's assistant flagged Pablo Counago offside in the dying moments of the game at Burnley after the Blues had given up an early two-goal lead to end up with just a 2-2 draw.
A seething Magilton said: “It was a shocking decision and it has cost us points. How he can give it is beyond me.

“Pablo is behind the ball by three or four yards and won a straight race.
It was the fourth home draw for the Clarets who needed a fortunate rebound from a blocked Andy Gray shot to level after Kyle Lafferty had pulled one back for Burnley.

Sylvain Legwinski and Alan Lee had put Town ahead in a very good all round Town display.
Mailton said: “It was a very good performance away from home. It was the pattern of our season when we played very well and score two very good goals. But again in the pattern of our season we fell asleep and let them back in.
“Gray has charged the ball down and it could have gone anywhere but it has gone in. At the very least we deserved was the point.”
Burnley boss Steve Cotterill saw it a little differently.
He said: “I was hoping it was offside and from where I was looking it looked offside. If it wasn't offside then maybe we deserved that bit of luck because of the saves the keeper made.
“We could have done with playing Ipswich a few weeks ago when they played 4-4-2 but they came here and played a 4-5-1, or 4-1-4-1.
“We could have won the game by three, four or five but their keeper has pulled off a couple of very good saves.”
