Former QPR co-chairman Tony Fernandes has hit out at referee Peter Bankes for letting a challenge on Geoff Cameron go unpunished as the side lost 2-1 at Leeds last week.
Whites midfielder Kalvin Phillips went in late on Cameron, with the American forced off at half-time in the defeat at Elland Road as a result.
And, it’s today been revealed that he is set for an extended spell on the sidelines after it was confirmed he had damaged his ankle ligaments.
That prompted an angry message from Fernandes on Twitter, with the majority shareholder critical of the challenge and the role the official played in it.
Why has nothing been done to the leeds player who fouled Cameron badly after the whistle had gone. Clearly shown on TV. Disappointed. What do refs do?

The loss at Elland Road made it four games without a win for Steve McClaren’s side who had performed superbly in recent months to get out of any relegation trouble.
However, the former England manager will see his small squad stretched over the Christmas period with Angel Rangel also out injured.
This has clearly come about because of the injury to Cameron and you can understand why Fernandes, and any QPR fan, will be frustrated as he is an important player to the team.
However, everything will be monitored for retrospective action in today’s game and clearly this didn’t warrant attention to some.
It was also not deemed reckless at the time by the official.
