Preston North End will appeal the red card shown to Neil Kilkenny in Tuesday nightâ€™s League One win over Port Vale.
The Lilywhites won 2-0 at Vale Park despite Australian midfielder Kilkenny, who is on loan from Bristol City, being shown a red card in the 13th minute.
The former Leeds United man was given his marching orders after a confrontation between North End striker Joe Garner and Vale's Anthony Griffith.
Preston released a statement on their official website that they plan to appeal the decision: â€śPreston North End are intending to appeal the red card handed out to Neil Kilkenny in Tuesdayâ€™s victory over Port Vale.
â€śThe Club intend to appeal the sending off on the grounds of mistaken identity, following an incident which occurred in the 13th minute of the 2-0 win over the Valiants.â€ť
The match was Kilkennyâ€™s third appearance for the Lilywhites since crossing from Bristol on a one-month loan on November 14.
