FA reject Millwall's appeal to overturn Lowry sending off

SHANE Lowry will serve a four-match ban after the Football Association refused to overturn his sending off against Sheffield Wednesday.

Lowry was sent off during Tuesday's 1-1 draw for an alleged stamp on Giles Coke.

However, replays show that Lowry was attempting to free the ball from between Coke's legs after a foul, rather than to injure his opponent.

"I am disappointed for Shane," boss Ian Holloway said. "We tried to appeal his red card, but they have absolutely, totally dismissed us with the arrogance they've got.

"It's unbelievable how they can sit there and say the referee and linesmen are never wrong.

"I cannot help their player's reaction to what Shane did. He tried to put his foot on top of the ball and get it back, and then their bloke threw him over.

"He's actually stepped on the ball and dragged it back with his foot, not stamped on him. It was not aggressive.

"I thought he had been sent off for his retaliation because I did not believe he was the one who started it.

"Their player should not have reacted like that – he might have been menopausal, I don't know. He's got to be crazy to respond like that at Millwall.

"Going through the process of appealing drove me insane yesterday. I think the referee lost control of the game.

"I'm a bit angry about it but such is life. Normally that referee is very good, I must admit.

"We've also been charged by the FA for being involved in a mass brawl. I thought 95 percent of the players who got involved were trying to calm things down."

    Is there not a DVD player at Wembley then so they can actually look at what happened, does anyone know if Everton FC went in first or did they follow us into the dock.

    look,s like i was wrong from where i was it looked like a lowry stamp,but why get involved when their player would most likely have got sent off as the incident was right under the nose of the linesman.

      @TrueLion: Everton were probably given a comendation for being a club where the fans share their wealth by throwing money on the pitch. I think we have to realise (am sure we do) that we will never get any help from the FA, so onwards and upwards.

    @sblion" don't agree that humpty back p**** of a ref is one of the worse, when they ref us they are all cheating us, and as bad as each other.

      @Jim28: Jim yes you are correct, but it was just the same with the goal line technology they dismissed it, but I am suprissed that there has never been a legal challage on this, if they will not allow evedence that could prove that you did not do what you have been found guilty of.

      If not in English law the the Europeian court of human rights as everyone one seems to go to that now and most of the time they win.

      Does that include bottle throwing cause they needed it for that lol. But my understanding is they use video when the club appeals. IMO

      @Jim28: if a club wishes to make an appeal over a red card, they must have video evidence which is viewed by the appeal board. This is the rule from youth and grass roots up throughout the game. No video, no appeal.
