West Ham will appeal the red card handed out to Chiek Kouyate against Palace this afternoon.
And they expect exactly the same result as they had when the midfield dynamo received his marching orders unfairly against Blackburn Rovers.
Chairman David Gold told ClaretandHugh a few minutes ago: “We have decided to appeal the card – the decision is plainly wrong and like everybody else I’m feeling very hard done by.
“We had Darren Ramdolph bundled over the line for Manchester United’s equaliser in the Cup match, a penalty awarded against us wrongly at Chelsea and now this.
“It’s happening almost every week and again today we are on the end of a very wrong decision – we have to appeal and fully expect to get the right outcome.
Everybody within West Ham and Palace admitted having seen it on replay that it was a yellow and the time has now come to introduce the technology to deal with these issue.
I believe we are heading for a situation where our game could be brought into disrepute if we don’t”
