U's Lodge Platt Appeal

U's Lodge Platt Appeal

Colchester United have officially launched an appeal against the suspension handed to Clive Platt following his red card during the friendly against Bolton Wanders last weekend.

Platt`s suspension, brandished automatically after an elbow on Lubomir Michalik, could be reduced from the mandatory three competitive matches due to a recommendation made by referee's chief Keith Hackett.

His advice comes after U`s manager Geraint Williams consulted Hackett, and the team of officials, about the reasoning behind the dismissal, which was as a shock to those watching.

Upon appeal, therefore, Colchester are now hopeful that the ban, which would see the club`s record signing of all time miss matches against Sheffield United, Barnsley and Shrewsbury Town.
