Sheffield United have appealed Claude Davis' sending off against Everton.
Sheffield United have appealed Claude Davis' sending off against Everton on Saturday.
The Blades have submitted a claim of wrongful dismissal with The FA over Davis' dismissal.
Davis was shown a straight red card for hauling down Andy Johnson inside the penalty area as he tried to race clear on goal.
The decision infuriated United boss Neil Warnock with the Bramall Lane chief launching a tirade at referee Dermot Gallagher.
A statement from the FA confirmed: "The FA has received a claim for wrongful dismissal from Sheffield United defender Claude Davis."
The FA's disciplinary commission will consider the claim on Tuesday and if United fail in their appeal Davis faces serving a three-match ban.
