The 21-year-old received his marching orders just after the half-hour mark when he appeared to strike out at Latics forward Nick Powell and completely changed the complex of the contest.
"I've not seen it again and I didn't see it in real time," PA quotes Bowyer as saying. "I didn't know what he got sent off for and as he came off I asked him what he did.
"I have to be honest I didn't understand him with the answer he gave me so I need to go and see it.
"It changed the course of the game because up until then we were very comfortable."
