Stoke have confirmed they have lodged an appeal to the Football Association against Robert Huth's red card in Saturday's Barclays Premier League match against Sunderland.

The German defender received a straight red card from referee Martin Atkinson, following a tackle on Black Cats midfielder David Meyler just before half-time.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis had indicated afterwards he was likely to appeal against the sending off and suggested play-acting by Meyler contributed to the dismissal.
