WREXHAM manager Brian Carey is to appeal against the sending-off of defender Steve Evans during the first half of yesterday’s 3-1 home defeat at the hands of neighbours Shrewbury Town.
Evans was shown a straight red card by Premiership referee Mike Dean after catching ’ midfielder Dave Edwards with his elbow and, following two dismissals this season, now faces a lengthy ban unless the match official moderates his view.
Carey, who is still seeking his first victory after nine games in charge at the Racecourse, said: “I was standing right in front of the incident when Steve got sent off and I felt that it was the wrong decision so I’m going to ask the referee to have another look at it.”
But the Dragons boss added: “The sending-off, although it was a wrong decision, was neither here nor there because I’m not blaming the referee for the defeat.
“The manner in which we started the game was what cost us.”
