Leicester Appeal Jamie Vardy Red Card Against Stoke
Category : News
Leicester City have appealed against the red card shown to English striker Jamie Vardy in Saturday’s Premier League draw at Stoke.
The 29-year-old was dismissed in the first half of the 2-2 draw after referee Craig Pawson ruled he had fouled Mame Diouf.
Replays suggested Vardy was knocked off balance by Glen Johnson just before making the tackle on Diouf and the Foxes will make their case to the FA.
If the Foxes, currently 15th on the table fail in their appeal Vardy will miss Boxing Day’s visit of Everton, the home game with West Ham on New Year’s Eve and a trip to Middlesbrough on January 2.
