QPR dropped ‘two vital points’ – Redknapp

QPR boss Harry Redknapp was bitterly disappointed after his team were denied a priceless home win against Swansea by Wilfried Bony’s injury-time equaliser.

The Swans, down to 10 men following the controversial sending off of Wayne Routledge, rescued a point courtesy of Bony’s fine finish and a late miss by Rangers striker Charlie Austin.

“There was only a minute-and-a-half to go and we defended for our lives, so to concede then is obviously a big blow for us,” Redknapp said after the 1-1 draw.

“I couldn’t have asked for any more from the lads. They did what was asked of them and even after their goal we should have scored – we had a great opportunity to win the game.

“We needed the second goal but when they put three minutes [of injury time] up, you think you just need to manage to see the game out and keep the ball in the right areas.

“These things can happen in football when you’re hanging on, are anxious and there’s a minute to go. That can happen.

“It’s two vital points I felt we deserved and needed but we couldn’t quite hang on for.”

Meanwhile, Garry Monk was furious with the decision to send off Routledge, who was red-carded for his reaction to what the Swansea manager insisted was a dangerous challenge from Rangers’ Karl Henry.
