The Football Federation decides on the appeal of the red card of Sam Morsy

Sam Morsy has seen a three-match suspension confirmed after being sent off in the draw with Rovers.

Morsy was sent off for what has been described as “endangering an opponent” during a challenge with Tyler Magloire.

Referee Michael Salisbury withdrew a consecutive red card moments after Hayden Carter was sent off for a second bookable offense in the 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough.

The Rovers defender will miss the Luton Town game on September 11 due to his one-game ban, but Morsy will need to serve a three-game suspension after his dismissal was confirmed.

Since the 1-1 draw, the 29-year-old has changed clubs, signing for Ipswich Town in League One where he will work for the third time under manager Paul Cook after previous stints together at Wigan Athletic and Chesterfield.

Boro boss Neil Warnock has made it clear the club’s intention to appeal the red card after the game, with Tony Mowbray offering his sympathy to his counterpart for the red card.

But it was Ipswich who revealed the three blackout stands, meaning he will miss the league games against Bolton Wanderers, Sheffield Wednesday and Lincoln City, but he will be eligible for the Papa John’s Trophy match against West Ham Under-21s on September 14.

“It was a very, very bad decision. He told the linesman or fourth official that it was a straight red, deliberately trying to hurt him,” Warnock explained of Morsy.

“The tackle, I don’t even think it’s a booking. He put out his right leg, I’ll give that to him.

“But it’s not a straight leg and he barely made contact with it. It’s a strange decision that really makes a bad afternoon worse for him.

Giving his opinion, Mowbray added: “I have to say I can’t even see Morsy’s red card, I don’t know, the referee was quick to pull his card out.”
