QPR must decide over Barton appeal

Published Add your comment

Queen's Park Rangers must decide on Tuesday whether or not to appeal Joey Barton's red card to the Football Association, who could yet take disciplinary action themselves against the club for post-match comments.

Barton had given Rangers an early lead at Loftus Road on Monday, before then getting involved in a tussle with Bradley Johnson, and appearing to headbutt the Norwich midfielder.

Initially, play had continued before eventually referee Neil Swarbrick consulted his assistant on the near side, and then produced a red card. Norwich went on to win through goals from Anthony Pilkington and Steve Morison, which leaves QPR just above the relegation zone.
