Henry hits out at sending off

Wolves captain Karl Henry could find himself in hot water with the Football Association after claiming the red card he received against Arsenal was "a disgrace". Henry was shown a straight red card in the 66th minute of Saturday's game at the Emirates Stadium following a tackle on Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky. The midfielder has revealed he was amazed when referee Andre Marriner brandished a red card in a match which was goalless at the time. The Gunners went on to win 1-0 following a last-gasp goal from Nicklas Bendtner. "I won the ball," Henry told the club's official website. "Denilson dropped away for me to go and win it and Rosicky tried to get across me to shield the ball and I'd already gone to ground. "I've seen it again and I actually got the ball first so it was never a red card - it's an absolute disgrace. "I can understand why it was a foul because he turned his back and tried to step across me and maybe I caught him from behind. "But if I'd have got a yellow card, I might have thought it didn't warrant that, so to get a red is an absolute disgrace."
