Hill Protests His Innocence

Hill Protests His Innocence

Queens Park Rangers defender Matt Hill insists that he got a touch on the ball for the hotly-contested late spot-kick.

Reading secured all three points late on courtesy of Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty, after he was felled by Wolves loanee Hill.

The defender was in fine form throughout the ninety following Rangers going down to ten men mid-way through the first period.

Two goal-line clearances and what looked to be useful last ditch challenge were to be his legacy as Rangers valiantly battled the odds at the Madejski.

Referee Gavin Ward had other ideas, as he pointed to the spot for what Hall told QPR.co.uk was definitely a corner.

He said: 'It was good skill from the lad, but as he's reached, I'm sure I played the ball away for a corner kick,'

'I was ready to go back in and defend the set-piece and then the referee points for a penalty.

'He's kidded the referee - I know I touched the ball, so it's bitterly disappointing.'


Hall has secured his starting berth ahead of Gary Borrowdale under Neil Warnock and his performances have improved under the former Sheffield United boss.

Last night (Tuesday) marked the first defeat for Rangers under Warnock, and it was a bitter pill to swallow given Rangers' dogged spirit.

If I'm honest I was surprised at the rapid nature of the decision - the referee gave himself no thinking time - pointed to the spot and dished out cards like confetti. I've never seen our players so incensed to be honest.

That was poor refreeing. T me the shocking bit was not the awfuly biased refereeing but the fact that Warnock has not said anything that the FA want to investigate.

I'm very happy about that - Warnock's game was needlessly blighted with that kind of thing, now he's in his twilight he can get on with what he enjoys. Recall him being very mellow when Sousa went beserk last season against Palace, funny to watch him trying to calm Sousa down!...and they meet again this weekend!

Can't see how you can argue the penalty, thought it was pretty clear cut myself. Some other decision did go against you though, notably Stewart's first yellow

The penalty wasn't clear cut from my view if I'm honest, thought Hill may have got some of the ball, and Sigurdsson was looking for it, in fairness he worked his position well, as Hill said above. Just gutted that we battled so hard and end up conceding a goal in this way.

Never a penalty. The Reading player played the ball forward, Hill stuck his leg out, the ball went for a corner off of Hill's leg, the Reading player went over Hill's leg after.
