Millwall have called for a review of the Football Association’s appeals process after winger Jed Wallace’s dismissal at the weekend was upheld.
Wallace was shown a straight red card by referee Tony Harrington for his challenge on Burton’s Tom Flanagan during his side’s 1-0 defeat on Saturday and Millwall launched an immediate appeal.
After the FA upheld the decision, Millwall have described the appeals process as “archaic” and have requested a meeting with the governing body, the Professional Game Match Officials Board and the English Football League.
“The club is extremely disappointed by the decision and believes the result of this appeal calls into question the FA’s entire processes in this regard,” Millwall said in a statement.
“Consequently, the club is now calling on the FA, with assistance from the PGMOL, to review the appeals process to ensure greater consistency and clarity in their decisions.”
Sky Bet Championship club Millwall said senior FA and PGMOL officials and the fourth official at the Pirelli Stadium had privately told them Wallace’s tackle did not warrant a red card.
“Since the rejection of this appeal the PGMOL have gone on record to say they are ‘flabbergasted’ with the decision and confirmed that at no point did anyone from the FA seek their opinion,” Millwall said.
“The club accepts that the current process does not allow for this which is why it is calling for a review into the way the FA judges appeals in order to modernise and, importantly, to ensure proper discussion with the relevant professional bodies takes place.
“It would appear in this instance that the FA have assumed that because the referee has stuck to his position on the dismissal that this too must be the view held by the PGMOL. That is clearly not the case.
“The club’s view is that the PGMOL should be involved in the FA’s appeal process which, as it stands, appears archaic.
“This incident highlights how a lack of appropriate communication has led to a decision which goes completely against the views of several other professionals, including the referees’ own governing body.”
The club added: “Steve Kavanagh, the club’s chief executive officer, has requested a joint meeting with the FA, the head of Judicial services at the FA, the head of the PGMOL and the EFL.”
When contacted by Press Association Sport, the PGMOL declined to comment.

EFL clubs have indicated they are in favour of an early closure to the summer transfer window from next season.
The decision was taken following a summit of all 72 clubs on Thursday, and will be subject to further discussions before it is put to a formal vote in February.
The EFL is set to follow the Premier League after its clubs agreed to close the window the day before the start of the 2018-19 season earlier this month.
The EFL’s proposal however, would continue to allow the signing of players on loan until August 31.
The indication by the EFL teams to introduce a shorter window for player transfers follows debate about the uncertainty caused to managers and players with activity still ongoing once the season has started.
“Today was all about understanding a direction of travel in what is a hugely emotive matter, not only for clubs and managers but supporters as well,” EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said.
“The clubs have been clear in their mandate and we will now go away and look to develop a set of proposals before moving this matter on to the next stage, which would be a formal vote in order to change our regulations.”
The 72 clubs also discussed, and opted against, using more than three substitutes during a match, but they will next year vote on a change of policy regarding the fielding of full-strength teams in the closing stages of a season.
A statement from the EFL read: “Clubs were asked to support the implementation of guidance on the following basis: ‘From the fourth Thursday in March, any team sheet for a League game should include at least 10 outfield players who featured on the team sheet for the League game before.’
“Clubs indicated they were in support of amending the policy guidance and a formal vote will now take place at the February Club Meeting.”
