Collins: Nottingham Forest plan to appeal red card

Centre-half Collins was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Latics forward Matt Smith after an hour of the third-round tie at the City Ground on Saturday.

Reds boss Alex McLeish feels the decision was harsh, with television replays suggesting it was little more than a tangle of legs - and that the Oldham man was pulling Collins' shirt first.

"We did have an issue with the sending off, we felt that he was pulling Danny's shirt," said McLeish after the surprise 3-2 loss to the Latics.

"I don't know if Danny even touched him. The big fella (Smith) seemed to collapse like he had deck chair legs. It looked as if he made the most of it.

"From what I have seen on the video, Danny did not make any attempt to make contact with him. Maybe when he was dragged down by his shirt he did.

"But that is the big question. I would like to see it blown up. We will look at it, I would think that it is a decision that is appealable."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
