Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers had no complaints about Neil Taylor's red card in the 0-0 draw with Nottingham Forest in their Championship play-off semi-final first leg.

The defender was dismissed after just 52 seconds at the City Ground on Thursday night after raising his boot in a challenge with Lewis McGugan.

Referee Mike Dean did not hesitate in dismissing Taylor to leave Swansea to play 89 minutes with 10 men, but Rodgers had no argument.

"To be fair to Neil Taylor, he is such an honest player," Rodgers told Sky Sports 1

"But, I suppose nowadays, if you put your foot up like that, then you are probably going to get sent off.


"So there is no real argument. It is one where it is early one the game, he is a terrific kid, he has been brilliant.

"I am disappointed for him that he got sent off. But, no arguments."

Swansea could be without Fabio Borini for the second leg in Wales on Monday after the on-loan Chelsea striker limped off with a suspected hamstring problem.

But Rodgers said of the Italian: "I don't think it is as bad as we first thought."

The Swansea boss added: "He has just put some ice on it. We will see in the morning."
