FA Confirm Kilgallon Red
After all the moaning from the red and white side of the city with regards to the sending off of Matt Kilgallon, an FA Commission have rejected an appeal against the decision from Sheffield United.
Blades fans and management alike were up in arms following the decision from referee Mike Dean to send Kilgallon off and reduce United to ten men in the Steel City derby on Sunday afternoon.
Wednesday went on to win the game 1-0, Steve Watson netting the decisive goal just a matter of minutes after the sending-off, with United boss Kevin Blackwell furious with the decision, which he believed changed the game.
The Blades put in a claim for wrongful dismissal after the former Leeds United man lunged in with a dangerous high tackle that sent Sean McAllister crashing to the floor.
But Kilgallon will now serve his three-match suspension after an FA Commission rejected the appeal today.
