Dickov plans to appeal Sharp's Amex red card
Paul Dickov has revealed Doncaster plan to challenge Billy Sharp’s red card at the Amex yesterday.
The on-loan striker was dismissed four minutes from time following a clash with Albion skipper Gordon Greer.
It was an unhappy return for Sharp who holds a place in the stadium’s history as the scorer of the first ever league goal at the Amex in August 2011.
Doncaster boss Dickov, a former Albion loanee, was unhappy with the dismissal.
He said after the game: “I have seen it. I will be speaking to my chief executive tomorrow (Sunday) and seeing what the proper procedure is to appeal.
“There has been a lot of stuff going on this week with West Ham and Andy Carroll. Everybody has agreed he was possibly unlucky to get a red card for swinging his arm a little bit. Billy if anything has pushed his should into his (Greer’s) chest.
“There seemed to be a bit of confusion from what my players told me about who actually gave the decision and a bit of confusion for what it was actually for. Having seen it again, I feel possibly there might be grounds to appeal.
“There were a lot of things I wasn’t happy with. Our players at 0-0 were getting pulled up for time-wasting. They score a good goal and start doing the same thing.”
