Doyle appeal confirmed

26 November 2012

The football club can confirm that they will be appealing against the sending off handed out to Nathan Doyle in the closing stages of City's 3-3 draw at Bristol Rovers at the weekend.

Doyle was dismissed for apparently kicking out at Bristol Rovers' Seanan Clucas after his reckless tackle on City's James Meredith, but City believe replies of the incident show Doyle did not commit such an act.

After taking advice from a number of parties, the club have decided to go ahead with their attempts to overturn Doyle's red card and the three-match ban which is scheduled to follow.

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson said: "We feel the dismissal is very harsh on Nathan and that there are grounds to appeal it."

An appeal hearing into Doyle's dismissal would most likely take place tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.
