Cambridge United lodge appeal against red card Lyle Taylor received against Bolton Wanderers





Cambridge United have appealed the red card that was given to Lyle Taylor during Tuesday evening’s 2-1 defeat at home to Bolton Wanderers.

The talismanic centre-forward was handed his marching orders late on against the Trotters following an off-the-ball incident with former United defender Jack Iredale.

It has left Taylor facing up to the prospect of missing this weekend’s derby against Peterborough United, as well as next week’s trip to Stevenage and the reverse fixture with Bolton.

However, while interim head coach Barry Corr is not overly hopeful that the decision will be reversed, he believes that there is enough in the video evidence for the U’s to make a case.

Corr, who is not planning to apply for the head coach’s job on a permanent basis following yesterday’s departure of Neil Harris, said: “The club have appealed Lyle’s red card. I think we’ll find out (the result) tomorrow afternoon.

“I looked at the incident and I think he’s trying to get in front of the player. There’s a bit of a tussle between Jack Iredale and himself and he’s trying to get in front of him.

“In the video it looks as though his arm is swinging, but he’s trying to get in front of a player.

“I have a great deal of sympathy with Lyle, but I’m not sure they’ll see it that way because they probably won’t want to go against the referee’s decision on the night.

“Maybe for those who have played the game, they might understand he’s trying to get across (the player) and his body in front. It’s a difficult one but we’ll see what the outcome will bring.”
