Everton lodge appeal

Published Add your comment

Everton have lodged an appeal with the Football Association over midfielder Tim Cahill's red card against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Australia international was dismissed in the 80th minute of the 2-0 Merseyside derby defeat at Goodison Park for his lunging tackle on Xabi Alonso.

Referee Mike Riley showed Cahill a straight red card, a fact which allows the Toffees to appeal.

According to the club, a hearing will take place later this week at which they are allowed to submit written documentation.

Cahill is facing a three-match ban, starting this weekend against Newcastle, if his appeal is unsuccessful.
