Millwall Football Club are set to appeal against the red card shown to caretaker-manager Dennis Wise during Saturday's 2-0 win over Sheffield United.

Wise was dismissed for the 13th time in his career just three minutes after coming on a substitute on Saturday by referee Rob Styles for a challenge on United's Chris Armstrong.

Lions Chief Executive Ken Brown commented: "Having studied the video a number of times Theo and Ray Wilkins are of the opinion that we have a case. Consequently we will be launching an appeal to the FA about Dennis's sending off."
