James: Sent off
Bristol City are set to appeal against the decision to award David James a red card against Middlesbrough.
The former England goalkeeper was shown his marching orders during the Championship clash with Boro on Saturday, which the Robins lost 4-0.
James was adjudged to have fouled Cameron Park and referee Daren Drysdale awarded a penalty that Leroy Lita converted.
City boss Keith Millen has confirmed that the club will appeal against the decision as James is adamant a foul was not committed.
He said: "Liam Fontaine was back on the line and the player's touch actually took the ball towards two other defenders.
"It's also debatable if David James even touched their lad and David was adamant that he hadn't fouled him.
"We think it's only right we appeal the decision and we'll be sending the footage off to the FA."
