QPR reaction

Praising his side's display, the QPR boss felt Forest were let of the hook by missed chances and that Chris Cohen's equaliser could have been ruled out.

"The second half was a big performance, with a lot of personality and playing some good football," he said.

"We created but we need to learn to score and close the game."

Sousa added: "The referee made one big mistake.

"There was a block. When there is a block in the box it is normal to have a free-kick. The rest of what the referee did was fantastic. "
