Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a brace to help Fulham produce one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Mitrovic opened the scoring in the 14th minute before sealing the three points from the penalty spot in the 78th minute. He took his tally for the season to 37 goals and looks on course to shatter the record for most goals scored in a single season in the Championship.

Managers Reaction 

QPR’s Mark Warburton: “It was 1-0. We looked dangerous and had a lot of energy. Then we get that decision. The linesman didn’t give it. He’s not given the penalty. How is that given? We’ve been the recipient of some very bad decisions this season. We’ve received a number of apologies for bad decisions and I’m sure we’ll get another one. But that’s not good for us. At 2-0, it’s game over and sucks the life out of the game. Game dead. It kills our fans. So I’m more than frustrated by the decision. You have to be sure if you’re going to give a penalty in a game of that nature. Make sure you’re 100 percent sure. Are you 100 percent sure? His (Wallace’s) arm never left his side. I’m very frustrated by that decision.”

Fulham’s Marco Silva: “I don’t look at this situation in this way [regarding Mitrovic’s record]. What would be a shame for us is if we don’t get our end goal at the end of the season. Individual things are not the main thing for us, to be honest. Of course, if we can help him, we will help him. But it’s not something that is in our minds. To show you this: if Harrison Reed didn’t feel some cramp, it would have been Mitro to come out to protect him, to manage him, and to give a chance to Rodrigo (Muniz) to go and play the last minutes.”
