West Brom appeal Jake Livermore’s red card against Huddersfield

West Bromwich Albion will appeal the red card shown to Jake Livermore in their 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The West Brom captain was sent off by referee Tim Robinson in the 78th minute for a foul on Fraizer Campbell.

West Brom were already a goal down at that point in the match, with Daniel Sinani’s giving the hosts a 1-0 lead in the sixth minute.

Valerien Ismael, the West Brom head coach, said after the match: “It was never a red card.”

Livermore’s sending off was West Brom’s second of the season, after Darnell Furlong was dismissed in the 3-3 draw at Fulham on October 30. Livermore also missed the 3-0 win over Bristol City the week before for the accumulation of five yellow cards.

The defeat still leaves West Brom third in the Championship, although Stoke City, who won 2-0 at home to Peterborough, are now just a point behind them.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, are now up to seventh and just a point behind Queens Park Rangers in the final play-off place.
