Eustace earns card reprieve

13 May 2008 - 15:12:05

Watford captain John Eustace has been given permission to face Hull in the second leg of the play-off semi-final after having a red card rescinded.

Referee Kevin Friend sent off the Hornets skipper in Sunday's 2-0 first leg defeat at Vicarage Road following an altercation with his opposite number Ian Ashbee.

Speaking after the defeat, manager Adrian Boothroyd hit out at the red card.

He said: "With the sending-off we have a situation where the Hull players are more experienced than the referee and they've talked him into a red card.

"The ball's on the floor, there are bodies around and he's gone for the ball.

"Are we not allowed to tackle any more?"
