West Bromwich Albion will appeal the red card issued to defender Pablo Ibanez in the 2-1 defeat at Blackpool.

The Spaniard was dismissed by referee Michael Oliver in the 11th minute of the Barclays Premier League encounter at Bloomfield Road after he was adjudged to have denied Blackpool striker DJ Campbell as goalscoring opportunity.

A verdict the Baggies dispute after viewing the incident from various television angles.

Albion have until 1pm on Wednesday to lodge their appeal with a decision from the FA disciplinary panel expected within 48 hours after that.
