D'Urso Admits Error
Andy D`Urso has improved the likelihood of Stoke City`s appeal being successful by admitting that he may have made an error in judgement with Andy Griffin`s dismissal on Sunday.
The Potters full back was sent off in rather contentious circumstances when he appeared to win the ball in a challenge with Hogan Ephraim, despite lunging towards the ball in a 50/50 challenge.
The incident occurred 3 minutes before half time, with Rangers already 2-0 up courtesy of goals from Mikele Leigertwood.
Football administrator Eddie Harrison spoke to the official website stating:
'The FA have confirmed to Stoke City that the referee has re-considered the matter after watching the incident again."
'His views will be submitted to the regulatory commission tomorrow along with the submission from the club."
'While it doesn't automatically mean his suspension will be uplifted, but the fact that he has now indicated that the matter was only worthy of a caution stands us in good stead.'
Here`s to hoping common sense prevails in football.
Rangers went on to win the game 3-0, which leaves them 8 points off both the playoffs and relegation, whilst Stoke City were kept off top spot.
