QPR midfielder Shaun Derry believes play-acting has become par for the course in the Barclays Premier League.

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is one of the league's major players who has been accused of falling dramatically when challenged while Manchester United winger Ashley Young has also had a question mark put next to his name for going down too easily in recent weeks.

But Derry reckons the growing level of play-acting is something that has to be accepted, and he said: "It is very much in fashion at the moment. I think the refs are onto it a bit more now and I'm not too sure it is going to be a major issue."
