Mullins hard done by?
Pompey's appeal against Hayden Mullins' sending off against Coventry on Tuesday has failed.
By all accounts the club were pretty confident that this would be overturned although following an appeal to the FA this was not the case with Steve Cotterill, as he told The Pompey Site, having this to say: 'I'm obviously disappointed. The lads here had put together a really good case.
'I didn't think it was even a penalty, but that's the second time in three games that I think we have been harshly treated.'
As a result Mullins will sit out the Cardiff game tomorrow.
You know what, we will miss the guy - now who would have thought any of us would have said something like that 12-15-months or so ago!
In missing this game he also loses his record as potentially going through the season as the only outfield player to feature in every game...
To be honest I have seen no footage of the incident, I only saw it as it happened and even then to say I 'saw it' would not be entirely true as I did not see the incident clearly at all - even so it sounds as though Mullins has been hard done by, not once but twice?
Once with the sending off and twice as this appeal has been thrown out...
So, what do you reckon guys. Was Mullins harshly treated and the appeal rejection double punishment, or was the right decision made on both counts?
