Last night, QPR fell to a 3-1 defeat in front of their home supporters at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to their London rivals Brentford.
Just before the hour mark, referee Andy Woolmer made a controversial penalty decision when he awarded a spot kick to the visitors following a supposed trip by Josh Scowen on Bees winger Bryan Mbeumo.
Said Benrahma then obliged to take the spot kick, and fired high into the top corner past home keeper Liam Kelly to put Brentford 2-1 up at a crucial point of the game.
Before the goal, Ollie Watkins had headed home a cross from Mbeumo after creeping in between the two centre-backs to meet it, before QPR captain Grant Hall then powered home a header to bring things back level.
Was the referee right to award a penalty to Brentford?
Then came the crucial penalty decision, followed by Watkins slotting in a Mathias Jensen cross to seal the three points and make sure that the Bees returned to Griffin Park victorious.
Brentford’s win moves them up to 12th from 14th position in the table, and missing out on the three points prevented QPR from moving on up to second.
Here, we bring you the best reaction from QPR fans surrounding the controversial penalty incident at a vital time in the game…

Look it happens players con refs .
But lets have red card issued when like that.
Even if it was a QPR player I would say the same

Come on @FootballLeage @FootballAssoc this is a disgrace, the standard of referees is scandalous and this one is right up there. Should be relegated to non league until he can assess situations correctly. Not a hard one very close and had a clear view, pathetic!

Problem with QPR is we go out to play football and not con the referees…. Honesty is our downfall
