Swansea City to appeal Wayne Routledge red card against Queens Park Rangers

According to BBC Sport, Swansea City are set to appeal the red card given to winger Wayne Routledge for his reaction following a bad tackle from Queens Park Rangers’ Karl Henry.

Referee Anthony Taylor failed to punish Henry for the tackle, and instead sent off the Swansea man for allegedly kicking out in frustration over the initial foul by Henry. Swansea have condemned the foul, and manager Garry Monk intends to have the red card rescinded.

“It’s a leg breaker. We’ll be appealing for sure. My player goes from nearly having his leg broken to getting sent off, I don’t see how that can happen. It’s hard for us to keep faith when we continually have decisions like this. I hope the red card gets rescinded because that will 100% be the right thing to happen,” said the City boss.
