Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is hopeful that Jacks Hobbs' red card in the 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers will be rescinded by referee Graham Horwood.Hobbs saw red for a foul on Darryl Duffy in the box after 56 minutes.Pearson told BBC Radio Leicester: "The sending-off was unfortunate. I don't think it was intentional and I hope the ref looks at it again."On-loan keeper Mark Bunn saved the resulting penalty and the Foxes held on to the lead given them by Matt Fryatt."Jack tried to clear the ball, it bobbled, Kerrea Gilbert was round to cover and so it was debatable if he was the last man," Pearson added.
