Bluebirds may launch McPhail appeal

Published Add your comment

Cardiff boss Dave Jones admits the club are likely to appeal the dismissal of Stephen McPhail in Wednesday`s 1-0 win at Reading.

The former Leeds midfielder saw red for a challenge on Jem Karacan with his side in front, but his team-mates were able to protect the lead given to them by Chris Burke's strike.

Jones said: "The sending off looked a little bit harsh, although his foot was up. After that we had to reorganise and play dirty football. I thought our goalkeeper and two centre-backs were magnificent after we went down to 10 men."
