QPR have appealed to fans to help them identify the spectator who threw a coin at assistant referee Stuart Burt during their Barclays Premier League win over Arsenal.

Burt was struck on the back of his neck by a missile which appeared to come from Loftus Road's Ellerslie Road Stand after he awarded an injury-time free-kick to the Gunners in Saturday's match at Loftus Road.

The Football Association are understood to be aware of the incident and are supporting efforts by QPR and the police to identify and punish the perpetrator, who could face a lifetime ban from the stadium.
