Desperate appeal

According to reports, the club have sought to appeal against Sebastian Bassong's red card on Saturday, in the hope of having him available for this Sunday's decisive game against Aston Villa.

Whilst I suspect this is more in hope than expectation, it's got to be worth a try. Presumably the argument will focus on the direction which Kamara was travelling when Bassong clipped his heels. He certainly seemed to be targeting the corner flag with his run rather than the goal (which of course begs the question why Bassong fouled him, but that's another story...)

With Habib Beye reportedly struggling to be fit for Sunday, we can only keep our fingers crossed and hope the FA show us some leniency.
