Pulis to appeal N´Zonzi red

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis plans to appeal the red card shown to Steven N’Zonzi during his team’s 3-3 draw at home to Southampton.

N’Zonzi was given his marching orders after being deemed to have stamped on Jack Cork in the second half of an entertaining contest at the Britannia Stadium.

Replays suggest the dismissal was harsh on the former Blackburn Rovers midfielders, and Pulis wants to see any punishment repealed.

“The disappointing thing is Steven’s sending off,” he said.

“Steven has moved his foot across, Cork’s on the ground and he has planted his foot in between Cork’s legs. I don’t think there is any intent there at all for him to hurt the lad.

“I think what might have affected the referee was Cork’s reaction. Steven hasn’t stamped on him and hasn’t touched him with the leg that goes on the ground.

“So that’s a disappointment for us and we will certainly be appealing. I am just hoping that Mark will have a look at it and, after some of the incidents that we have been involved with this year, that he will look at it favourably for us as a football club.”
