Ipswich Town are to officially appeal Toto Nsiala’s red card against Sheffield Wednesday, the club have confirmed.

The defender saw red from ref Jeremy Simpson after 75 minutes at Hillsborough for what looked a fair tackle on the Owl’s Fernando Forestieri.

Moments later, Lucas Joao headed home the Wednesday winner as Town were beaten 2-1.

The appeal will be heard by a Football Association Regulatory Commission this week. Nsiala faces a three game ban if the red card is not rescinded, meaning he will miss the games against Norwich, Hull and Brentford.

After the game, Town boss Paul Hurst said: “Everyone has seen it. I’m told their guys have said it’s a totally wrong decision. I’ll try and be careful with my words because it seems as though we can’t criticise when people get things wrong, which isn’t right to me.

“I criticise players, I’m sure people will criticise me if they feel I am getting things wrong... It’s his job and he’s got to do better than that.”

He added: “I don’t understand what the lad is supposed to do after winning the ball. Is his leg supposed to just drop off? Forestieri runs into him and actually kicks Toto.”
