Chris Ramsey irked by refereeing errors in Tottenham Hotspur loss

QPR boss Chris Ramsey hits out at referee Craig Pawson for denying his team two penalties in the 2-1 defeat to Spurs.

Chris Ramsey has claimed that poor refereeing undermined Queens Park Rangers in this afternoon's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

Goals in either half from Harry Kane at Loftus Road heaped the pressure on relegation-threated Rangers, who remain three points adrift of safety.

Sandro threw his side a lifeline on 75 minutes, before referee Craig Pawson rejected widespread appeals for a penalty after Nabil Bentaleb appeared to handle inside the area.

Pawson had earlier denied Mauricio Isla a penalty after going to ground under a challenge from Hugo Lloris, and Ramsey feels that the decisions could prove decisive in his side's relegation battle.

"Yes. I think sometimes there are decisions that are fine lines," Ramsey told reporters.

"But I think when you're fighting for every point like we are, you have to try and grab on to everything you can.

"Momentum always changes with goals so I'm very disappointed that we couldn't get at least one of those decisions."

The Londoners will be hoping for better luck when they travel to Crystal Palace next weekend.
