Oh Danny boy

Given the tackle on Craig Fagan that landed him an instant red card on Saturday, Danny Guthrie can consider himself very fortunate indeed to have escaped without an extension to his three-match ban on a technicality. The FA spokesman's comments suggest that, had the option been available, it would have been taken, and they're actively considering amending the rules for cases like this.

All that said, the incident may yet have more serious repercussions for Guthrie than simply undoing all his good work so far and missing the games against West Ham, Blackburn and Spurs, as Fagan, whose leg was broken, is rumoured to be considering legal action.
