QPR manager Ian Holloway reacted angrily to his side being reduced to nine men in their 1-0 defeat to Preston, and says he will be looking into both incidents.

The Hoops were very much in the game until the 22 minute, when Mackie was given a straight-red card for a late tackle which saw him receiving his marching orders.

Preston then scored a late winner, before Alex Baptiste was sent off after the final whistle for abusive language, something which Holloway says he needs to look into.

Who was the stand-out performer for 10-man QPR against Preston?

Speaking after the game Holloway said: “I will look at Alex, I’ll look at that because he says he was speaking to his mate and he’ll probably be suspended now. I don’t think that gave me any credence to go in and speak to the referee because now I’ve got two players sent off in a game where I didn’t even see a bad foul.

He’d only just been booked for the first one because he bounced the ball down which is something I’ll have to talk to him about, but what he then said to a former team-mate, the referee is saying it was said to him. If he did say it to the referee, I can’t argue with that either, because you can’t do that.”

When asked about Mackie’s red card, Holloway said: ““I will be appealing it, that’s all I’m saying on that.”
