So that confirms it's a three-game ban then.

Strange sending off under Serious Foul Play... I had it down as a red card for Denying Goalscoring Opportunity, as I thought he did mistime his tackle on the guy when through on goal and last man.

Would now expect this to be overturned.

Absolute farce. This one game has contained a serious amount of rough justice.

Macca played the ball first but could not stop . there player was just as much to blame as he just kept going looking for a foul.. could go either way

Spoke to a guy at work who's a fully qualified referee.

His opinion is that it wasn't a red card.

It's not two-footed, he only had eyes for the ball, his foot didn't go over the ball, and at no point did he leap in or leave the ground. It was an old-fashioned sliding challenge and, while it may have looked heavy, it was controlled.

In which case he's not sure what 'serious foul play' occurred.

Still, that's the opinion of one individual, and not the opinion of a panel who, let's be honest, will be looking for absolutely any reason to back the man who made the decision at the time - particularly as he's regarded as one of the best.

In my opinion - biased as it is - I thought it was a great challenge. McKeown's initial hesitation may have caused the problem, but as a defender I'd have been proud of that challenge. It was a goal-saving challenge and he had to win the ball, which he did.

Football is a contact sport and you can't stop yourself sliding into the opponent when you're committed like that.

For those who think my opinion would be different had the Lincoln keeper done the same to us, sorry, but I'd have accepted that it was a top challenge (although naturally I'd have appealed for a free kick and red card in the crowd, in the heat of the moment, more out of hope than expectation).

I can’t help but think appealing is a pointless excercise and will only increase the ban as they’ll back a PL ref every time.

Yeah, you’re right. There hasn’t ever been a single red card overturned from  a PL ref 🤔🤔🤔🤔

About as much use as a Scunthorpe season ticket.

I think they only increase the ban if they think the Club have just appealed just to delay the ban kicking in so player is available for next game, when it's not realistically a case worth reviewing.

And whilst we do have a game on Tuesday, it's hardly a massive game for a lower-mid-table side such as ourselves. So I wouldn't expect them to seem it a frivolous appeal and add a game on.

As for the chances of our appeal being successful, I'll be surprised if it is. I don't think it was a red card but I'll bet they won't want to go against their Premier League referee who probably thinks he did them a favour by dropping down to do a League Two game.
