30 October 2017 : Yeovil Town Launch Appeal Against Olomola Red Card
Yeovil Town have decided to appeal against the red card issued against Southampton loanee Olufela Olomola on Saturday. The striker was dismissed in the 63rd minute of the match for violent conduct, with referee Christopher Sarginson also sending off Stevenage substitute Kevin Toner in the aftermath of the incident.

The situation was sparked after Olomola grappled with Stevenage full-back Joe Martin on the floor, with Martin receiving a yellow card for his involvement. The club will have sent a video of the incident to the Football Association, who will now convene a video panel to give their view of the situation.

For the appeal to be successful, they must be confident that referee Sarginson made an incorrect decision. If the situation is ambiguous or unknown then the referee's decision would be final. The club will receive a decision within the next few days, and certainly before Saturday's match against Southend United.

The club have allowed the red card issued against Francois Zoko to stand. He will miss the FA Cup First Round tie against Southend United and the trip to Carlisle United. If the FA Cup match against Southend goes to a replay, then he will be suspended for that replay. Otherwise the third match of the suspension will be the League Two fixture against Swindon Town.
