Warnock Left Fuming Over D'Urso Error

Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock isn't known for his diplomacy when it comes to criticising officials and he didn't disappoint yesterday, when commenting on his teams performance in their 0-0 draw at the City Ground.

Warnock was annoyed with referee Andy D'Urso's decision not to award his side a first half penalty, when Lewis McGugan brought down Tommy Smith inside the Forest box. I have to say that from my seat in the Upper Trent End, it was as clear cut as they come and D'Urso looked well placed to give the decision. It came as a huge relief to the majority inside the ground to see him wave play on and for the Reds' to get to half time level.

Speaking to The Sporting Life, Warnock said. 'It was an absolutely blatant penalty. Tommy was past his man and two players touched him, not just one. I thought the referee (Andy D'Urso) had a decent game but that was the big decision. I don't think I've had anything from him since we were playing with lace-up balls.'

Whilst Warnock had a valid point in his claims for a penalty, Forest had one of their own. My view on the Reds' claims for a spot kick, weren't as clear as the one upsetting Warnock so much, but there were loud claims for a handball in the QPR area, also in the first half of the game. It all worked itself out in the end I suppose and as disappointing as it was for both teams, a draw was a fair result.
