Pools have notified the Football Association of their intention to appeal against the red card shown to Liam Donnelly in Saturday’s game at Barnet.
The full-back was sent-off midway through the second half for a foul on Bees striker John Akinde, which resulted in a penalty for the home side.
However, after studying video evidence, the Club feels there is grounds for an appeal and have this morning set this process in motion.
If an appeal fails, Donnelly will be forced to serve a one-game suspension, which would mean he would miss Sunday’s FA Cup tie against Stamford.
We’ll have the latest developments on this here on the Official Website.
