Daggers to appeal defender’s red card
Dagenham & Redbridge will contest Damien McCrory’s dismissal in Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Plymouth
Dagenham & Redbridge will appeal the red card shown to Damien McCrory for his part in the last-minute penalty that saw Plymouth earn a 3-2 win at Victoria Road on Saturday.
Moments after the left-back had been named as the sponsors man of the match, McCrory found himself the wrong side of substitute Issac Vassell, who tumbled to the ground inside the box.
Referee Christopher Sarginson initially waved away the penalty claims, but assistant referee Richard Kendall flagged and Sarginson pointed to the spot, before showing McCrory a straight red card.
Daggers boss John Still said after the game: “I thought it was a penalty. I thought Damien hung his foot out.
You may also want to watch:
“The boy couldn’t score because he was going slightly away from the goal, so we’ve contributed to our own downfall.”
While Daggers do not dispute the award of the penalty they have appealed the decision to show McCrory a straight red card for ‘denying a goalscoring opportunity’.
