Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed that they have launched an appeal against the red card issued to goalkeeper Carl Ikeme during the club's 3-1 defeat at Norwich City on Saturday.
The 30-year-old received his marching orders in the 72nd minute of the encounter for his reaction to a penalty being awarded to Wes Hoolahan, with the tie finely balanced at 1-1.
In a statement on Twitter, Wolves confirmed: "Wolves have lodged an appeal for wrongful dismissal against Carl Ikeme's red card at Norwich on Saturday.
"The written and video evidence in support of the appeal has been submitted to the Football Association ahead of today's 5pm deadline."
Taking to his own Twitter account after the game, Ikeme admitted that his sending-off had been "hard to take" and accused Hoolahan of "blatantly" diving in order to win the penalty.
