Hull City have appealed the red card shown to Tom Huddlestone in Saturday’s 4-0 Premier League defeat to Everton.
The 30-year-old was dismissed after 73 minutes at Goodison Park when referee Paul Tierney ruled he had fouled Idrissa Gueye, with the hosts scoring three and wrapping up the points after the red card.
Hull boss Marco Silva said the decision changed the game and that neither the midfielder nor the other Tigers players deserved the red card after his side had started the second half well.
"It was one game until 70 minutes and then another game. Surely we didn't deserve the decision," he said. "After that [starting the half well] came one decision that I really don't understand and changed all of the game. Our team, our players, didn't deserve this decision."
Huddlestone will miss Hull's crucial Premier League fixtures against West Ham, Middlesbrough and Manchester City if the appeal is unsuccessful, with the club set to hear the outcome by the end of the week.
Hull are 18th in the Premier League table, three points from safety.
