Huddersfield Town want an explanation from refereeing bosses over a penalty call they believe could have cost them £200million.
Club officials were stunned when the retiring Jon Moss — who took charge of their Championship play-off final against Nottingham Forest at Wembley — was not instructed to watch a replay of Max Lowe’s second-half penalty-box barge on Lewis O’Brien.
The incident was sent to VAR Paul Tierney, who was seemingly happy that Moss’s decision not to award a spot kick was not a clear and obvious error.

Forest were leading at the time and won the match 1-0 to secure a place in the top flight next season in the most lucrative match in world football.
Huddersfield will ask for bosses at referees’ body PGMOL to tell them why Moss was not sent to the monitor. They will then consider their options.
The Terriers had another penalty claim turned down 10 minutes before the O’Brien incident, when full back Harry Toffolo appeared to be clipped in the area by Forest midfielder Jack Colback.
Tierney agreed with Moss’s on-field call that Toffolo had dived and the defender was booked.
VAR, absent from the EFL regular season, was used in the play-off finals for the first time.
