MK Dons manager Karl Robinson had no complaints with Angelo Balanta's late dismissal in the 3-2 defeat at Bournemouth but felt Cherries defender Rhoys Wiggins should also have seen red.
Goals by Danny Hollands, Anton Robinson and Marc Pugh turned the match around after Sean O'Hanlon had headed MK Dons in front just before half-time.
Peter Leven cut the deficit from the penalty spot 10 minutes from the end, while Balanta was sent off in the closing stages for violent conduct.
Robinson said: "They came together and both players raised their hands. The fact that Wiggins did exactly the same thing suggests he ought to have gone too.
"Angelo's got so much ability, but he's got to accept that players are going to want to push him and kick him.
"He's got to learn to deal with that. I can't condone what he did. It was stupid, but Wiggins should have gone as well."
