QPR manager Neil Warnock was left fuming after a penalty decision went against his side in a goalless stalemate against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Lewis McGugan appeared to bring down Tommy Smith in the first half and 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."

He added: "I know it was a difficult decision because it's a penalty and a red card but we'll just keep playing the way we are and hope we can score a few more goals and penalty decisions go with us.

"We've come here with two suspensions and a couple injured but we've had a go and tried to play the game the way it should be.

"Their keeper Lee Camp has made some fabulous saves and I think it says everything that Forest kept the ball at the end and were pleased to see the whistle go.

"We've got a couple of home games now and Cardiff is one of them so we'll see how we get on with them."
