Carlisle United lodge appeal against Raynes sending off

Carlisle United Football Club can confirm that an appeal has been lodged against the red card shown to Michael Raynes late in the game at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

Manager Keith Curle said: "We've reviewed the game as a whole, and this incident in particular, and we feel we have good grounds for an appeal. There were a number of challenges against us through the 90 minutes where arms were raised and no action was taken.

"In this case Michael stood his ground, kept his eye on the ball and made a genuine attempt to win it as he moved towards it. There was no malicious intent in his challenge at all."

The appeal panel is due to convene later this week.
