Wolves manager Mick McCarthy believes it will be to the detriment of the game if the tackle which resulted in midfielder Nenad Milijas sending off at Arsenal in midweek is outlawed.

Milijas lost his appeal to the Football Association against the red card for the challenge on Gunners play-maker Mikel Arteta and will serve a three-game ban starting with Saturday's clash at Bolton. McCarthy took the unusual step at his pre-match media conference of screening incidents from the Arsenal match and inviting opinions from journalists.

"I think the fabric of the British game is based on people tackling. I think Milijas has made a really good tackle. I don't think Stuart Attwell can see that. He has guessed at it," said McCarthy.
