Cahill appeals against red card
Monday 13 September 2010
Bolton defender Gary Cahill has appealed to the Football Association against the red card he received in Saturday's Barclays Premier League match against Arsenal.
Cahill was dismissed for his foul from behind on Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh after 64 minutes of the Emirates Stadium clash.
Arsenal, who led 2-1 at the time, went on to win the match 4-1.
The appeal will be held by a regulatory commission tomorrow, the FA announced.
Bolton manager Owen Coyle was disappointed by referee Stuart Attwell's decision to judge the foul as a sending-off offence, saying on Saturday: "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."
