Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Nathan Doyle is held back by team-mates at Bristol Rovers Nathan Doyle is held back by team-mates at Bristol Rovers

City have this afternoon won their appeal against Nathan Doyle’s red card.

An independent Football Association panel overturned referee David Phillips’ decision to send him off at Bristol Rovers.

It means the midfielder is clear to play for City against Brentford in the FA Cup on Friday.

Boss Phil Parkinson said: “I’m really pleased for Nathan but I was always confident that he’d done nothing wrong.”

Good news for Doyle and the club. In David Phillips defence...he'd had a good game and was taking advice from the fourth official regarding the Doyle incident..it was the fourth official who said Doyle had kicked out. We've had some poor refs especially last season and seasons before that but this season and on Saturday i think there has been a vast improvement.

Your right bcfc1903 Phil Parkinson said the ref had said he didn't see the incident it was the 4th official who brought it to his attention so he put it in his report to the FA, to be honest I thought they would close ranks and support the officials, but as many have said on other threads there was no kick involved,makes you wonder about the eye sight of some of the officials and some Bristol fans if you read the other thread on this subject :-)).

Who cares if their player gets a ban or not, the only thing that matters is Doyle is available for the next 3 games??

quickly proven that the officials had no idea what happened and they were simply guessing. the fact they sent off the wrong Bristol player is a matter also for deep concern.

He totally lost control of the situation, and tried to gain it back by brandishing a red to Doyle. Has he got what it takes to ref. at professional level????

UNBELIEVABLE!!
Have Bristol appealed their players second yellow and subsequent red which was given to the wrong player? As it happens there wasn't any affect on the result of the match but there could have been. Obviously the ref has been honest in his report, all credit to him for that!

It never should have come to this if the 4th Official, would have kept his gob shut. Right let's on and some proper Fottball played. We live in hope that match officials do their job as they should do. C'mon City !

Amazing that the Ref sent the wrong man off for them and sent our player off for doing absolutely nothing wrong. If they sent the wrong man off for them there is a case that neither the Ref nor the forth Official saw anything. Puzzling.

Anyone think the behavior of City's bench contributed to the incident.
There seems to be too many episodes of mis-behavior since Parkinson came
