Crystal Palace have appealed the red card received by Luka Milivojevic in the Premier League loss to Wolves last Friday night.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson has labelled the Serbian’s dismissal as a “gross injustice” after referee Martin Atkinson deemed the midfielder to have endangered an opponent in a tackle despite seemingly having won the ball.

The Eagles were beaten 2-0 at Molineux with Hodgson exclaiming after the game that losing Milivojevic for 3 games due to suspension will make the defeat a “much tougher pill to swallow.”

The club have lodged an appeal with the FA’s disciplinary panel regarding the decision and will likely discover the outcome of the complaint by the end of this week.

Crystal Palace are 13th in the Premier League table and if the appeal is unsuccessful, they will be without their captain for fixtures with Leeds, Burnley and Newcastle United this month.
