QPR 1-1 Swansea: Last-minute Wilfried Bony strike snatches point for Garry Monk's men

Via

Wilfried Bony came off the bench to score an injury-time equaliser at the end of a stormy encounter at Loftus Road.

But Swansea were still furious about another controversial decision from Anthony Taylor when the referee and his assistants failed to spot Rob Green handling the ball outside his box after only six minutes.

Taylor booked Cesc Fabregas for diving in his last match at Southampton when the Chelsea midfielder was felled in the box by Matt Targett.

This time the Wythenshawe official and his assistant failed to spot the former England keeper stop Wayne Routledge when he was through on goal by using his hands just outside his area.

Green, who was superb at the Liberty Stadium last month, later superb saves from sub Wilfried Bony and Ki Sung-Yueng.

But Bony, the Premier League”s top scorer in 2014, salvaged a point during a frantic finale when Charlie Austin and Joey Barton missed chances to give the Hoops a needed home win.

Swans boss Garry Monk had surprisingly left his top scorer Bony on the bench until the 71st minute in his last game before the African Nations Cup. And his replacement Batetimbi Gomis looked lively but missed a series of chances.

Leroy Fer showed the way to goal after 20 minutes when he lashed home from outside the box for his third goal in eight games.

Wayne Routledge was sent off in the 86th-minute against his former club after retaliating against Karl Henry. The QPR midfielder was booked by the busy Taylor.
