QPR have decided to appeal to the Football Association against the red card Joey Barton received against Norwich at Loftus Road.

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

Initially play continued, before referee Neil Swarbrick consulted his assistant nearest to the incident and then produced a red card.
