QPR boss Neil Warnock admitted he was undecided about whether to appeal over Joey Barton's red card in the 2-1 defeat to Norwich. The Rangers skipper was shown a straight red, and a three match ban, when he appeared to headbutt the Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson.

"I have not got any confidence in the appeals procedure," the QPR boss said.

"When [Wolves manager] Mick McCarthy appeals and does not get that lad [Nenad Milijas] off, you have got to worry about anything appealing.

"We will have to look and see what the referee says [in his report] and if there are any other angles, but from everyone I have seen, I don't see a headbutt.

"But I am not optimistic. We will have to decide later."
