Steve Evans has been left fuming after a late penalty against his Leeds United side resulted in a 1-1 draw with QPR, arguing that his goalkeeper had little to do and the R's deserved nothing from the Championship clash.

Leeds started well at Elland Road and began to apply pressure on QPR. Mustapha Carayol had an effort in the 29th minute, but found the QPR goalkeeper equal to his attempt.

The Whites dominated possession, but struggled to carve QPR open to create clear cut chances. Debutant goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell was tested by Massimo Luongo with a long range effort just before half time, but saved well.

QPR showed signs of life in the early stages of the second period, but Leeds did not look in serious danger and took the lead in the 70th minute.

Indeed, Luke Murphy picked out Chris Wood, who found space and made no mistake, finishing well.


As the clock ticked down Leeds were moving towards three points, but error prone defender Giuseppe Bellusci gave away a penalty in the 87th minute, allowing Tjaronn Chery to step up and blast his spot-kick past Peacock-Farrell.

It ended 1-1 and Evans was unhappy with Leeds dropping two points by conceding a late goal. And although he has little doubt over the fact Bellusci committed a foul, he feels Leeds should have had a foul given their way in the build up.

"They've not had a chance all night. The young goalkeeper has had nothing to do", he said on LUTV.

"I've had a look and it's a penalty for me, but why is it not a foul on Lewie Coyle a few seconds before? Dare I say it's because we are Leeds.

"I think we controlled the game from start to finish. QPR gave us a lot of respect and packed men behind the ball.

"If you are a neutral then there is no way QPR should leave with a point", Evans added.

Leeds have now slipped to 15th in the Championship on the back of their draw.
