Former Aston Villa and Middlesbrough player George Boateng has sympathised with the QPR fans who left the game early last night.
A number of fans left the clash with Brentford when they were 2-0 down, missing a dramatic injury-time comeback which saw them score twice in three minutes to draw level with the Bees, resulting in fans receiving criticism from manager Ian Holloway; something which Boateng says was harsh.
Speaking on Sky Sports' Premier League Daily, he said: "It’s a Monday night, and as a fan you’re thinking ‘my team is losing’.
"They’re not leaving because they want to leave the club, they’re leaving because they’re disappointed that they’re 2-0 down. "Of course if they knew there was going to be a couple of goals in injury time they would have stayed, but they’re thinking ‘we've lost, I’m disappointed and I wanted my team to win, but I’m not a no-show’.
"They’ll be as gutted as Ian Holloway that they left and missed two beautiful goals to get a point back.”
