LUFC Grayson - It was a blatant red card

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson felt the officials got it right when they sent off Chris Cohen in the first half for what he called a blatant red card.

Cohen was shown a straight red card late in the first half for a tough tackle on George McCartney that infuriated Grayson so much he came onto the field of play.

The Forest midfielder lunged in on McCartney and despite taking the ball, he also took out the Leeds left back with his follow through.

Speaking on BBC 1 Match of the Day live after the game, Grayson said, "From where I was standing it was a blatant red card. He`s left the ground two footed, he might have taken the ball but he could have quite easily have broke George McCartney`s leg.
"That is why I was a little bit upset about the challenge, I`m sure if it had been a Leeds player making that sort of challenge the Forest bench would have been up in arms as well".

The challenge infuriated the Leeds bench and an altercation between Grayson and Forest assistant manager David Kelly followed with members of both benches getting involved.

The decision was the turning point of the game after Forest had enjoyed the better of the game in the first half.

Leeds came out in the second half and quickly took the lead through John Howson.

Forest got a goal back through Gareth McCleary but two Max Gradel goals wrapped up the victory for Leeds.

Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has said that the club with appeal against the red card.
