Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has revealed that he was unable to get a ticket for his side's clash with Chelsea this afternoon.
The midfield ace, who has been out on the sidelines for the past month through injury, was seemingly on his way to Stamford Bridge before being told that he didn't have a ticket for the all-London clash.
Fear not, though, Barton took to Twitter to reveal that he was heading to the Championship game between Brentford and Derby County instead.
And, if he's keeping up to date with his side's game at the Bridge this afternoon, then he won't be in great spirits as the Hoops are currently 1-0 down to the Premier League table-toppers. Barton missed quite the goal, too, as Brazilian playmaker Oscar struck a wonderful effort past Rob Green to give Jose Mourinho's side a half-time lead.

Back to Loftus Road
Barton will be hoping that his manager Harry Redknapp gives a strong half-time team talk as the Hoops look to get back into the game. The midfielder will certainly be pleased that QPR are back on home soil in their next fixture as they play host to Premier League champions Manchester City.
In fact, the former Newcastle United man will be desperate to get back on the pitch in the near future, as he will get a much better view of the action.
