Micky Adams has confirmed that the club may appeal the red card given to defender Chris Robertson.
I spoke to the referee after the game and he said he sent Robertson off for the tackle. I think we can all see it was Chris Lines…
Robertson was dismissed late on during Vale’s 2-1 win over Crawley but manager Adams says Robertson didn’t make the challenge and that the tackle by Chris Lines wasn’t worthy of a red, anyhow.
Adams commented: “I spoke to the referee after the game and he said he sent Robertson off for the tackle. I think we can all see it was Chris Lines.
“I think when the referee sees it, he will see that Chris Lines’s studs slipped from underneath him and the momentum took him into their lad. I don’t think there is any malice intended at all.
“You can appeal for mistaken identity.”
If Robertson is not cleared he faces a three game ban.
