Routledge faces one-match ban

Last updated : 27 September 2002 By PalaceMAD
Routledge was harshly dismissed by referee Andy Hall for alleged shirt pulling and Palace are not able to appeal the officials decision because it was a second yellow card caution.

Eagles boss Francis said: "We have been told you cannot appeal if a sending off is for two yellow cards. You can only do so for a straight red."

And so, Routledge will now have to serve a one-match ban.
