Rodolph Austin: Leeds have launched an appeal against his red card

The Leeds midfielder was dismissed in the first half of Saturday's final home league game of the season following a clash with Ashley Barnes and is currently facing a three-match ban.

The game was a fiery encounter that ended with Leeds reduced to nine men and Brighton, who sealed a Championship play-off spot, down to ten at the final whistle.

Inigo Calderon was red carded for hauling down El-Hadji Diouf and the Senegalese striker was in turn also dismissed for making a gesture to the visting Albion fans.

Austin is expected to learn his fate early this week when his appeal is heard by the Football Association.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
