Villa to fight Friedel red card

23 March 2009 04:15
Aston Villa will make an appeal against the red card shown to goalkeeper Brad Friedel during Sunday's 5-0 hammering at Liverpool. The visitors were already down 4-0 when Friedel was dismissed by referee Martin Atkinson for bringing down Fernando Torres after 65 minutes. However, the American argued he went for a 50-50 ball and had nowhere else to go after Torres got to it first. The club expect to hear a decision from the Football Association on Tuesday.
