Ian Holloway was frustrated to see QPR fans leave early before their stunning late comeback against Brentford

An angry Ian Holloway said that more QPR fans should have stayed to see their dramatic last-gasp comeback against Brentford.

The home side looked to be down and out at two goals down as the fourth official's board went up to show four minutes of added time, but Matt Smith and Luke Freeman struck in the last two minutes to make it 2-2 and salvage an unlikely point.

Holloway should have been happy with the result, but instead was frustrated to see so many of the home fans stream out early.

"We keep talking about our character and fighting and my boys have done that and kept going," he told Sky Sports. "Half our fans have gone home, so I'd like to say to them: you should have stayed.

"Our boys need you. Why didn't you stay? Everyone who did, fantastic, well done and you deserve it too.

"Don't go home early, if you don't mind, stay there."

Holloway believes QPR deserved at least a draw from the game, and had some bad luck with the officiating, saying that Lasse Vibe's first goal of the night was offside and his side should have had a penalty after John Egan appeared to handball a Luke Freeman shot after 61 minutes.

"I felt we did very well in the game and didn't deserve to be two-nil down," he added. "The first goal is clearly offside. The penalty: the goalie is off his line, he [Egan] has stuck his arm out and it's obviously handball.

"I don't know what they [Brentford] were shouting about out at the end - they thought the referee cost them - but for me, you expect a standard and a level from these [referees] coming down. I don't think he lived up to it."

"Our dressing room will be a lot happier than their one," he said, before finishing his interview by staring straight down the camera and adding: "What I will say is never think you've won until it's over."
