Bradley Dack’s late penalty gave Blackburn Rovers a 1-0 win, and Queens Park Ranger’s fans have had their say online.
Queens Park Rangers suffered their first defeat in six, after they went down 1-0 to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.
Bradley Dack’s 87th minute penalty was enough to inflict defeat on the R’s, leaving a section of supporters insisting on Twitter the decision to award the spot-kick was a bit harsh.
Josh Scowen was adjudged to have fouled Ben Brereton in the box in what looked like a harsh decision from the referee that will leave QPR feeling hard done by.
The game itself was a rather drab affair up until the late drama, with both sides seemingly content on taking a point apiece. QPR offered very little going forward, and Rovers probed without any real conviction.
QPR manager Steve McClaren will be disappointed at going down to a late goal and will want to see a vastly improved showing against Brentford next weekend. The west London Derby provides a perfect opportunity for the Hoops to get back to winning ways.
Until then, the Loftus Road faithful have been left to reflect on what was another miserable afternoon against Tony Mowbray’s side, without a win against Rovers since 1999.
Here’s look at some of the best reaction from QPR fans:
That referee could not wait for his moment in the spotlight with that penalty decision. Was obviously not a penalty.— Lee Newell (@leonardnewell) November 3, 2018
Was never a penalty he got the ball— Tony (@TonyLawlee) November 3, 2018
Was the softest penalty seriously— Lee Giggity (@Childsey11) November 3, 2018
Would like to see it again, but from what I saw that was never a pen. Back to being robbed by officials I see! Didn’t deserve a win, but neither did they.— Kelly (@Kelly_QPR) November 3, 2018
Wasn’t good enough. 2 teams that were awful. Wasn’t a pen but what a stupid ‘tackle’— Tom (@ThomasLewington) November 3, 2018
Was always going to be a tough game. They’re no mugs. Would have taken a point but not to be. We start again next Sat and restore a little local pride. Heads up boys. COYRS— Paul Payne (@paulpayne1708) November 3, 2018
Dropped below the standard we have set ourselves. Guilty of thinking a draw would of been a good result, always play to win!— Gavin Myers (@13gpm) November 3, 2018
Unlucky guys. Lets get back to winning ways next Saturday aturday— Jeff McCullagh (@jeffqpr1882) November 3, 2018
