Warburton ‘frustrated beyond belief’ after QPR defeat

QPR manager Mark Warburton was incensed by a hugely controversial penalty decision during his team’s derby defeat against Brentford.

Rangers were beaten 3-1 at Loftus Road, where Grant Hall hauled them level before Josh Scowen was adjudged to have fouled Bryan Mbeumo.

Said Benrahma restored the visitors’ lead with the resulting spot-kick and Ollie Watkins’ second goal of the game sealed Brentford’s victory.

“It was lost on a big decision, let’s be really clear,” said former Bees boss Warburton.

“We deserved to go in at half-time 1-0 down. We had to step up the tempo and move the ball better in the second half – and we did.

“We got the equaliser, were in the ascendancy and I was really confident at that point.

“Then that decision changes everything. You have to be really sure if you’re going to give a call like that – make sure you’re 100%.

“I think you’ve seen the replays I’ve seen. I think I’ll let you describe it because I might get fined if I describe it appropriately.

“We were in good shape and I’m frustrated beyond belief to see a game change in that manner over that type of call.

“You see Josh go to make the challenge. He then pulls his left leg back, puts his hands up and the guy (Mbeumo) is already in the air.”
