Barnsley boss Paul Heckinbottam had no qualms about the challenge that saw Ryan Manning sent off in QPR's 1-0 victory on Saturday.
The Irishman was shown a straight red card in the 71st minute for a nasty challenge on the halfway line, but the opposing boss believes that tackle was a genuine attempt for the ball by the QPR man, albeit it very late.
Ian Holloway described the challenge as a 'nasty one' but didn't believe it was intentional - a view his counterpart in the Barnsley dugout shared after the game.
He said: "I had a great view, I think it was a genuine attempt for the ball but he was late.
"The two players were fully committed - I have no qualms because the ball was running away from him so it was just late, but I don't think it was anything, but because of how late it was it was dangerous."
