Championship: Ainsworth annoyed as QPR draw with Swansea City
A late equaliser for QPR against Swansea City was not enough to appease manager Gareth Ainsworth.
They had trailed to seventh-minute Josh Ginnelly goal in the Championship match at Loftus Road.
It looked like giving the Welsh side their first win under boss Michael Duff but Lyndon Dykes, on as a second-half substitute, equalised when he headed home Ilias Chair’s left-wing cross for 1-1.
However, it was annoyance about the opening goal that occupied the thoughts of the Hoops boss at the final whistle.
He said: “I’m not happy. The Swansea goal is handball. The referee missed it and the assessor has said they couldn’t see it without VAR, but his hand is out.
“The rub of the green is going against us at the moment. We deserved more from that game.
“I will add, though, that we must hit the target more. We must work the opposition keeper more. We’re creating chances and we need to take them.
“Lyndon’s header was that moment of brilliance in a game where we should really score more goals.
“We’ve got to be better at getting on the end of things. But we are creating chances and that’s a good thing.
“At the final whistle you saw seven or eight boys just collapse on the floor because they’ve emptied the tank again.
“I’m disappointed we didn’t get more out of tonight, but it would have been an absolute travesty had we not got that point.”
Rangers go to Birmingham City on Friday night for an 8pm kick-off.
