Neil Lennon argues with the fourth official in the loss at QPR

Bolton boss Neil Lennon called referee Darren Drysdale an "absolute disgrace" following their loss at QPR.

After going 2-0 up early on, the Wanderers lost 4-3 in the 94th-minute when Jay Emmanuel-Thomas curled in to leave them in the relegation places.

Asked about the referee, Lennon told BBC Radio Manchester: "I've never seen a more biased performance from a referee in a long time."

"He gave QPR everything he possibly could, I was so frustrated with that."

Bolton manager Lennon on defeat

The 44-year-old continued: "Any 50/50 challenges, it looked at times the free-kick was going to go to us, he invented a free-kick for QPR.

"It was a really frustrating performance from him from my point of view."

The defeat at Loftus Road means it is just one win in the first 11 games of the season for Bolton, including a League Cup exit at home to League One side Burton.

"I'm angry, I'm frustrated," added the former Celtic manager.

"It's just three goals away from home you expect to get something from the game, at least a point and we've come away with nothing.

"With 30 seconds to go, again, I don't understand why we're not seeing things out."
