Brighton and Hove Albion have decided against appealing the red card issued to Adam El-Abd in Saturday's home defeat by Milton Keynes Dons, according to The Argus. As a result El-Abd will definitely be missing three matches, including next Saturday's visit to Huish Park.
Despite manager Russell Slade approaching the referee to ask him to review his decision, Paul Taylor was not persuaded:
"Iíve seen it again and it looks stuck on to me. It did not look good."
Deemed serious foul play, as the defender went in to contest a ball with foot high and studs showing and caught Richie Partridge, El-Abd will miss tomorrow's Football League Trophy match versus Leyton Orient, and league games against Yeovil Town and Gillingham. He is the fifth Brighton player to be red carded in their last eight matches.
