Ferguson fuming after QPR draw

28 March 2010 10:13
Billy Jones's clinical finish fired Preston ahead in the 37th minute and fellow full-back Callum Davidson doubled the advantage from the penalty spot 11 minutes after the restart.[LNB]Yet QPR refused to lie down and on-loan Tottenham playmaker Taarabt, 20, capped an outstanding display with assists for both Rangers goals.[LNB]First the Moroccan played in right-back Peter Ramage to rifle home a fine finish in the 57th minute and another clever pass allowed Tamas Priskin to level the scores nine minutes later.[LNB]Rangers boss Warnock said: "He's not an easy player to have in your side if I'm honest.[LNB]"He's got tremendous skill but it's how you play him.[LNB]"We've got good players and he complements us. Will he go back to Tottenham at the end of the season? Oh aye, they want £4.5million for him."[LNB]Rangers had chances to win the game that were spurned, with substitute Rowan Vine most culpable with a dreadful finish after Taarabt had played him in.[LNB]Warnock was not happy with the penalty decision which saw Kaspars Gorkss punished for hauling down Preston striker Jon Parkin.[LNB]The former Sheffield United boss said: "If you are giving penalties for that then you're going to be giving them all over the show.[LNB]"It was a sloppy one but all credit to the lads - we dominated the second half and got back into it and then we had the miss of the day through Viney. He still doesn't know how he's missed it."[LNB]The result stretched Preston's winless run to four matches and left Ferguson bitterly frustrated again.[LNB]His side had also squandered a two-goal lead in their last home outing against Sheffield Wednesday on March 16.[LNB]Ferguson said: "We shot ourselves in the foot again and to be quite honest at 2-2 I would have taken a draw because they were well on top.[LNB]"That wasn't good enough today - nowhere near.[LNB]"At 2-1 we lost all shape and discipline and it hasn't a couple of times now - against Sheffield Wednesday when we were 2-0 up and against Nottingham Forest when we went 3-0 up but got away with it."[LNB]Ferguson conceded defeat in his side's slim bid to reach the play-offs and admitted his side are still not safe from relegation.[LNB]"We can forget about the play-offs," he said. "But we're not safe yet and we've got to be aware of that."[LNB][LNB]
