Neil Harris believes Fulham's Rui Fonte conned the referee into awarding the home side a penalty in their 1-0 loss to Slavisa Jokanovic's side.
It looked like the Portuguese man's shirt was pulled in the box but Harris felt that Fonte conned the referee into the giving the decision - calling the spot kick harsh.
Oliver Norwood tucked it home from the spot to give the game it's only goal, but Harris was unhappy with how Fonte won the penalty, saying he'd done well to force the referee into giving it.
“It’s the story of our season away from home,” Harris said. “I can’t fault my players for their attitude, implementing the game plan, doing exactly what I asked of them.
“It was two very different styles of play: total football and trying to play through the middle and the other a bit more direct.
“We went with three up top and one behind and it worked, we played on the front foot, we were aggressive and had chances. Our anticipation in the penalty area needs to be slightly better and that comes through confidence as much as anything.
“At the other end we get punished by a harsh refereeing decision. I can see why he’s given it but the player has conned him into giving it, in my eyes. We get punished by a penalty right on half-time and that probably sums up where we’ve been so far.
“What helps the referee give it is Macca’s the wrong side of the player but contact is minimal. The player clearly throws himself at an angle to the floor to highlight the contact. The player has done well to force the referee to give it."
