QPR's Dexter Blackstock will serve a three-match suspension after the Football Association rejected the club's appeal against his dismissal in Tuesday night's 3-1 defeat at Stoke.
The 21-year-old was shown a straight red card by referee Uriah Rennie in the 47th minute for a late challenge on Stoke's Ryan Shawcross.
The FA's decision to uphold the dismissal sees Blackstock miss the forthcoming fixtures against Blackpool, Crystal Palace and Scunthorpe United.
Luigi De Canio's QPR are currently 22nd in the Championship, and have gone four league games without a victory.
