Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes QPR are trapped in a cycle of dodgy decisions from match officials - and there’s no sign the wheel is about to stop.
Rangers would have claimed a point had it stood because Tjaronn Chery later hit another. But assistant Darren Robathan ruled Junior Hoilett’s cross leading to Polter’s ‘goal’ had crossed the dead-ball line. It hadn’t, as TV replays clearly showed.
Hasselbaink insists it’s just one of many decisions that have gone against Hoops in recent weeks.
“It’s every game I’m not getting the rub of the green, but I’ve not complained,” he said.
“We all see it was a normal goal. We are in that cycle and only us can get us out of it, and hopefully the referees will give us the right decisions.
“The last game against Preston, it was a red blatant red card (for Tom Clarke after he denied Tjaronn Chery a goal-scoring chance), the player only got a yellow. The week before that it was something else, and the week before that it was something else again.
“I can have a go at the referee; I can have a go at the linesman. But all I will say is to the boys: keep going it will turn.”
