Oxford United will not appeal against Herbie Kane’s red card at Lincoln on Saturday.
The midfielder was shown a straight red card for a second half challenge and will now miss the next three games through suspension. Manager Karl Robinson told iFollow
“We felt with the way the referee ran that game it wasn’t a red card, just an isolated incident, but to the letter of the law I don't see how you win the appeal. I don’t think there was any malice in it but in the stills available he lifts his foot and there is not enough clear evidence to overturn the card under appeal. That’s fine we move on, but Herbie is gutted about it and about missing the next three games.”
The U’s could be without another key midfielder for the trip to Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday with Cameron Brannagan limping off during the second half at Sincil Bank.
“He felt his hamstring tighten but did the right thing and got off the pitch straight away and he is going for a scan later today” Karl said. “Hopefuly it’s not as bad as we first feared but let’s wait for the results and then we can just see how it settles down over the next few days.”
