QPR boss Neil Warnock stressed the Football Association charges levelled at the Championship side have no similarity to the Carlos Tevez affair. The league leaders were charged by the FA earlier this week with seven breaches of regulations relating to third-party ownership and agents.
On that occasion, the Premier League elected to impose a £5.5million fine on the Hammers rather than impose any points penalty.
However, Warnock believes parallels cannot be drawn between the two cases.
He told the Daily Mail: "I've spoken to our legal advisers and they have been very reassuring.
"From what they have told me, this is nothing like the Tevez situation."
