Barton given extension by FA

The Football Association has accepted a request from Queens Park Rangers captain Joey Barton to be given additional time to submit his response to two charges of violent conduct following his dismissal against Manchester City on Sunday.

• Barton charged with violent conduct
• Hughes to decide Barton punishment
• Barton apologises for red mist

Barton was originally given until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the charges, but now has until midday on Wednesday.

The midfielder was shown a red card for swinging an elbow at Carlos Tevez, but before he left the field he felled Sergio Aguero, went head to head with Vincent Kompany and had to be pulled away from Mario Balotelli.

The shameful scenes did not overshadow City's thrilling, last-gasp title success, but he is now facing the prospect of a lengthy ban after being charged by the FA.

Barton receives an automatic four-game ban for the red card, as he had previously been sent off this season, and now faces a ban of at least 10 matches which would see him suspended until the end of October.

A statement released on QPR's official website read: "The Football Association have tonight (Tuesday 15th May 2012) confirmed that the deadline for Joey Barton to respond to his charges has been extended to midday tomorrow (Wednesday) at the request of his representatives.

"The FA charged the Queens Park Rangers midfielder in relation to two acts of alleged violent conduct during Sunday's match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

"Following the player's dismissal in the 54th minute of the fixture, there followed two incidents involving Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany.

"As Barton had already been dismissed, both of these incidents fell outside of the jurisdiction of the referee. The Club will be making no further comment at this stage."
