SEAG­ULLS GIVE UP ON INIGO RED

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

BRIGHTON boss Sami Hyypia is not ap­peal­ing Inigo Calderon’s red card in the Cap­i­tal One Cup tie at Bur­ton, even though he be­lieves it was wrong.

The Seag­ulls de­fender went for a high chal­lenge on Rob­bie Weir, but his man­ager thinks the tackle looks worse than it ac­tu­ally was.

Hav­ing con­sulted with of­fi­cials, Hyypia is re­signed to los­ing the Spa­niard for three games and is not will­ing to add another to that with a failed ap­peal.

“We have spo­ken with ref­er­ees and they sug­gested we wouldn't get the decision over­turned,” he said. “We don't want to run the risk that he will get an ex­tra game added to his ban.”
