Unsurprisingly Wolves will appeal referee Stuart Attwell’s decision to send off Nenad Milija? in the game against Arsenal a couple of days ago.

The Serbian midfielder received a straight red card after 75 minutes for what appeared to be a fair challenge on Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta.

With the game poised at 1-1 Wolves had to battle for the final 15 minutes with 10 men, a feat most teams away at Arsenal would fail to do.

Wolves of course thankfully managed to hold on to what could be a valuable point, but now of course want to get the decision overturned so that Milija? avoids serving a suspension.

Speaking about Attwell, Wolves skipper Roger Johnson said: ‘I hope the referee has a look at it and rescinds it. I feel that Ned has gone in one-footed and pushed the ball.’

After the game Mick McCarthy was left bemused by the decision in his interview with the BBC: McCarthy said: ‘I can’t for the life of me see why he has been sent off.

‘His foot was on the floor when he made contact with the ball and I can’t work out which bit of that makes it a bad tackle.
