Swans to appeal Fernandez dismissal

29th October 2014

Swansea City can confirm that the club will be appealing the red card issued to defender Federico Fernandez against Liverpool last night.

The club officially informed the Football Association by today's 1pm deadline.

The Argentinian defender, who faces a three-match ban, was shown a straight red card by referee Keith Stroud for a tackle on Philippe Coutinho during stoppage time in the 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Anfield.

The FA will make a decision on the appeal ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Everton.
