Shaun Derry has lost an appeal against his controversial sending-off in QPR's Barclays Premier League defeat at Manchester United and will miss Wednesday's clash with Swansea.

Midfielder Derry was red-carded for tripping Ashley Young in the penalty area 14 minutes into Rangers' 2-0 loss at Old Trafford on Sunday after officials failed to spot Young was offside. QPR lodged an appeal for wrongful dismissal in the hope a Football Association regulatory commission would take into account the refereeing error.

There were also suggestions Young may have dived to win the spot-kick, with Rangers chief executive Philip Beard claiming the winger "could partner diver Tom Daley at the Olympic Games". But the FA announced the decision to punish Derry for denying a goalscoring opportunity stood, as did his one-match ban.
