Hull boss Peter Taylor is planning an appeal against Boaz Myhill's red card at QPR.Hull City manager Peter Taylor is planning an appeal against Boaz Myhill's sending off against Queens Park Rangers.
Myhill was dismissed 14 minutes from the end of Saturday's 2-2 draw at Loftus Road after being deemed to have caught the ball outside the penalty area.
Replays appear to indicate that, while Myhill's feet were outside the box, he actually had hold of the ball inside his area.
Taylor will review the incident and feels it will be a criminal decision from the officials if the footage shows Myhill should not have been sent off.
"My players are telling me it wasn't even outside the box and if that's the case I'll be very disappointed," said Taylor.
"That's a crime and the linesman should be ashamed of himself.
"I saw a game between Brighton and Crystal Palace recently, where the Brighton goalkeeper slipped and handled the ball.
"It was miles outside the box and he wasn't sent off. All we're asking for is some consistency. I can't believe the same rule doesn't apply in the same situation.
"If it can be proven he didn't handle outside the box, I'll appeal and I expect him to get off.
"Even if it was outside the box, he slipped and should have got a yellow card - that is common sense."
