Hoops appeal Derry dismissal

Queens Park Rangers have lodged an appeal against Shaun Derry's sending-off against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

• Man United see off QPR
• QPR accuse Young of diving
•  QPR blog: Rotten eggs

Hoops midfielder Derry was shown a red card by match referee Lee Mason for fouling Ashley Young inside the box - resulting in a penalty and the opening goal in United's 2-0 win.

However, contact was minimal on Young and the United forward was clearly offside when he received Wayne Rooney's through ball.

QPR have appealed the sending off on the grounds of 'unfair dismissal' and the FA have agreed to hear the appeal on Tuesday afternoon.

Should the appeal be successful, Derry will be in line to feature for QPR against Swansea City at Loftus Road on Wednesday evening.

QPR boss Mark Hughes confirmed the club would appeal in the immediate aftermath of Sunday's defeat. He said: "Yes. We will appeal the red card. We need all hands on deck on Wednesday, plus Shaun has had a rest. He only played for 15 minutes."

In a move that could land him in hot water with the FA, Hughes also added that many managers were worried after recent decisions from referees.

"You do discuss it before every game," he said. "You worry more about decisions going against you and it shouldn't be like that. You should have confidence that the referee will get the key decisions right. "Just lately a lot of managers have lost faith in them.

"It is a difficult job. You have to be strong and really clear. You have to be 100% right to give the decisions. At the moment people are guessing and hoping that they get it correct. That was the case today."
