FA to hear Iwelumo appeal

22 Sep 2008 - 14:01:22

Wolves have decided to proceed with their appeal to the FA over Chris Iwelumo's red card in the victory at Preston North End.

The former Stoke City and Colchester United forward scored a hat-trick at Deepdale before being ordered off violent conduct for a foul on Sean St Ledger.

After the game both players told referee Martin Atkinson that any clash between them had been accidental.

Mick McCarthy had said after the match: "It was a strange afternoon for Chris. He played exceptionally well, scored a hat-trick and got the match ball and then got sent off.

"St Ledger has been in to see the referee to say that nothing happened and you can't get a better witness than that.

"All credit to him, he's been up against a player who's given him a real battle and has scored a hat-trick and yet he's still gone in to see the referee.

"It was nothing, not a clash of heads, anything, and bearing in mind the witness is the other player involved, I'd hope the sensible thing will be done and it will get rescinded."

However, Wolves will not be appealing the red card awarded to Wayne Hennessey in stoppage time.
