Hangeland was red-carded for a two-footed tackle on Cattermole on the half hour mark, with second-half strikes from Steven Fletcher, Carlos Cuellar and Stephan Sessegnon sealing only the second win of the season for Martin O'Neill's men.

Cattermole told Sky Sports 1: "At the time I thought it was two-footed and the rules say that you can't do that.

"It was unfortunate and not malicious. I don't think it was too bad but you can't do that."

"Every game's a tough game and we've found ourselves playing well but not getting the results we deserved. This was a massive game for us and we got the three points we deserved.

"We've got back to back home games now so it's something we can build on. We'll take a lot of confidence from that and keep working and try to climb the table.

Fletcher, who was scoring for the first time since September, added: "It was a relief to get a goal and get the three points. It's been coming.

"Sessegnon has been working very hard and he's been playing brilliantly so it's fantastic."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
