Bolton defender Gary Cahill on Monday appealed against the red card he received in Saturday’s 4-1 defeat against Arsenal.
England international Cahill faces a three-match ban after being dismissed for a foul from behind on Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh in the 64th minute of the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium.
Bolton boss Owen Coyle, whose side conceded two more goals after Cahill’s departure, was furious with referee Stuart Attwell’s decision.
Coyle said: “I don’t think it merited a red. All of a sudden we were playing Arsenal with 10 men, and it is difficult at the best of times with 11.
“We had put so much into the game that at that time we looked like the team who would get the equaliser.”
Cahill’s appeal to the English Football Association will be heard by a regulatory commission on Tuesday.
