Wolves appeal Berra red

19 November 2012

Wolves have lodged an appeal with the Football Association against Christophe Berra's red card at Watford.

The npower Championship club are claiming wrongful dismissal after the centre-back saw red for "denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity".

Berra was dismissed 25 minutes into Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road following a tussle with Troy Deeney.

Referee Graham Scott allowed play to go on, resulting in Deeney getting in a shot on goal, but then went back and showed Berra the red card.

Wolves will be submitting both written and video evidence to support their claim, and a decision is due before the weekend's game against Nottingham Forest.
