Manager Holloway was unhappy his attacking players did not want to take the penalty.AdChoices广告He said: “They were hanging on for grim death at the end and then to top that off we’ve missed a penalty.“I’ve had some words to say about that, because I’ve got a defender who was shouting about taking the penalty more than the forwards who were on the pitch.Embed from Getty Images“I pay them to score goals and I pay my defenders to defend, so I’d like it (taking a penalty) the other way around.“Stop being so nice. Grab that ball – ‘I’m taking it’ – bang. It should be in the net. Instead we got no points.”Conor Washington missed a great chance to equalise soon after Sone Aluko’s goal and the R’s were unable to find an equaliser despite dominating for large spells of the game.“Some of the performance was excellent, but you don’t win games if you don’t take your chances – and that was probably the absolute classic of it today,” Holloway said.“Who was the home team? Who was the away team? Last year when I came here it was like the Alamo the other way around, whereas today we should not have lost that game with the chances we had.”center_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
