FA rejects McClure red card appeal

5 March 2015

The club's appeal against the red card shown to Matt McClure on Tuesday night has been rejected by the Football Association.

The striker was dismissed for alleged violent conduct in the 2-1 victory over Tranmere Rovers, but the club submitted a case in defence of the player based on video evidence, particularly in comparison to similar challenges which went unpunished by the referee.

McClure will now serve a three-game suspension.
