West Brom to appeal Robson-Kanu red card

West Bromwich Albion will appeal against the red card shown to forward Hal Robson-Kanu during Saturday’s 1-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League, the club has said.

Robson-Kanu scored the winner in the 71st minute and was shown a straight red card 12 minutes later after his elbow struck Burnley defender Matthew Lowton in the face as they challenged for a ball in the air.

“Albion have contacted the FA (Football Association) and will submit a claim of wrongful dismissal,” the club said on their website (www.wba.co.uk).
