Ian Holloway came out fighting after his QPR side rescued a point against Brentford with two goals in stoppage-time.
The Rs looked set for their fourth successive league defeat after Lasse Vibe's double had put the visitors 2-0 up, only for Holloway's men to produce a dramatic recovery.
Matt Smith and Luke Freeman got the goals with 93 and 94 minutes on the clock respectively, although plenty of the home fans had already made their way to the Loftus Road exits with their side staring down the barrel of a derby defeat.
And Holloway was not happy with the supporters who did not stay until the end.
"We keep talking about character and fighting and they've done that and kept going," he told Sky Sports.
"Half our fans have gone home, so I'd like to say to them: you should have stayed"
"Our boys need you. Why didn't you stay? Everyone who did, fantastic, well done and you deserve it too.
"Don't go home early, if you don't mind, stay there."
Holloway was also fuming about Brentford's first goal, although it was a tight call, he felt that Vibe was 'clearly' offside, and the decision not to award Rangers a penalty when Luke Freeman's shot struck Josh Egan's hand angered him too.
"I felt we did very well in the game and didn't deserve to be two-nil down," he added.
"The first goal is clearly offside. The penalty: the goalie is off his line, he [Egan] has stuck his arm out and it's obviously handball.
"Don't know what they [Brentford] were shouting about out [at the end] - they thought the referee cost them - but for me, you expect a standard and a level from these referees coming down. I don't think he lived up to it."
The Rs boss was clearly delighted to get the equaliser and ruin the Bees' night too.
"Absolutely magnificent. Our dressing room will be a lot happier than their one," he said, before finishing his interview by staring straight down the camera and adding: "What I will say is never think you've won until it's over."
