I was at the game.  The time between the handball and the ball being put in the net from the rebound from very close range was probably less than a couple of seconds. I very much doubt the ref even had time to raise the whistle to his lips. Surely what the ref should have done is award the goal and book the defender for unsportsmanlike conduct?  The decision, however, was in line with much of what the official had done during the game.  I've never seen a crowd get so angry at a referee's failure to manage a game.  He spoke to the Accrington keeper in the first half, for example, about blatant time wasting at goal kicks.  The keeper took no notice, carried on taking an age over them and nothing happened.  Incidentally, whatever happened to the six second law??
