Aston Villa to appeal Gabby Agbonlahor red card

Aston Villa have appealed against red card shown to Gabriel Agbonlahor during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United.

Manager Paul Lambert admitted after the match,  the club were likely to contest the decision and an official appeal has now been lodged. The club are likely to receive the outcome on Tuesday ahead of their Barclays Premier League Boxing Day trip to Swansea.

It was the second consecutive match in which a Villa player was shown a red card, following Kieran Richardson's dismissal against West Bromwich Albion on 13 December.
