Sean Dyche has confirmed Burnley will appeal the red card issued to midfielder Dean Marney last Saturday against Birmingham City.
Marney was shown a straight red by referee Darren Drysdale for a tackle on Blues full-back Paul Robinson an hour into the 2-1 defeat.
At the time Dyche was unhappy with the decision and, after reviewing the incident again, his opinion hasn't changed.
The Clarets boss has decided to appeal against the red card, hoping that the energetic midfielder won't receive a ban.
Dyche stated: "We will be appealing. We felt it was the wrong decision at the time and since then we have looked at the incident again in the cold light of day to confirm our belief.
"We've also sought a few opinions from other people that confirm our thoughts, so we will put our faith in the appeals process in the belief we can get the right outcome and have the red card rescinded."
The dismissal came when the scores were level at 1-1 and the 10 men of Burnley went on to be beaten by a stunning last-minute strike from Marlon King.
