West Ham United will reportedly appeal Andy Carroll's red card he received during the 2-0 win against Swansea City.

The striker was given his marching orders for a raised arm following a tangle with Swans defender Chico Flores and could miss the next three games.

However, manager Sam Allardyce will contest the decision in an attempt to have the ban rescinded, according to Sky Sports News.

Carroll was involved in both goals for the Hammers as he claimed a couple of assists for his teammate Kevin Nolan.
