West Bromwich Albion manager Bryan Robson led renewed calls for 'video verdicts' after two penalty shouts failed to go his way in their crunch derby clash with Aston Villa.

Twice inside little more than a minute at Villa Park, referee Mark Halsey turned down Albion penalty shouts for handball against home defenders Aaron Hughes and Liam Ridgewell.

It meant that a mere point for Albion [2014] only their second in eight games [2014] was not enough to lift them out of the Premiership's bottom three. And it shortened the odds on Robson's Baggies becoming one of the two teams to join Sunderland in the Champion-ship next season.

But Robson, whose side were beaten by Villa at The Hawthorns in January ironically by a penalty given for handball, believes his side are not getting a fair roll of the dice.

"Last week, Liverpool's first goal was shown to be off-side," said Robson. "And I haven't forgotten the penalty Villa got at our place when the ball was belted at Steve Watson from ten yards and it hit his arm.

"They picked up three points for that and we could have been taking them back today. We were really dominating at that stage and a penalty then more or less wins us the game.

"I'd love Andy Gray on Sky to do an analysis of our games this season, because we get more decisions against us than for us, by far.

"Another two points today and we'd be back out of the bottom three.

"We've done more than enough to win.

"And to dominate a local derby in the way we did, and not take three points, is really disappointing.

"After all the endeavour and effort the lads put in, it makes you angry.

"I was quite calm when I approached Mr Halsey at the

end but he said they were both 'ball to hand' but now I've seen them on video, they both match my original thoughts. For the one, Ridgewell bent his body and arm into the ball and that's what stopped the ball going to one of our forwards. And, for the other one, the lad had his arm raised high."

Robson was further upset by a tenth booking of the season for Ronnie Wallwork that earned him a suspension and will keep him out of the games against Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United.

But the Albion manager's main gripe was over the two penalty shouts, And, having had the benefit of consulting video evidence, all Robson hopes is that referees might one day soon be allowed the same assistance.

"I've been saying this for the past seven years, since I was manager of Middlesbrough. Why can there not be a camera for penalty decisions so that the fourth official can make a ruling and then people feel justice was done?

"From all the League Managers Association meetings I've had, I know every manager would like to use cameras for big decisions. And they already do it in cricket and rugby."

Had the handball decisions from this season's two Villa-Albion derbies been reversed, it would have put an entirely different slant on the Premiership relegation battle, with a six-point swing in the Baggies' favour on Villa.

But Robson still received the backing of yesterday's opposite number David O'Leary, already totally sold on the benefit of 'Trial by TV' after watching it work in rugby.

"I'd love to see video evidence," said O'Leary. "Technology has improved and decisions can now be called in just seconds.

"Admittedly, we had Luke Moore going nuts in our dressing room with a shout for a penalty which he thought we should have had. I didn't think it was, nor did I think they were penalties at our end. But I can understand Bryan's frustration."
