Burnley contest Michael Duff red card in loss at West Ham

Michael Duff
Dyche said Duff's red card "ruined the game"

Burnley have appealed against defender Michael Duff's red card in Saturday's 1-0 defeat by West Ham.

Duff was sent off for a professional foul on Cheikhou Kouyate, conceding a penalty which Mark Noble scored.

But boss Sean Dyche said after the game: "It's impossible for it to be a red card. Jason Shackell is in position to go and cover."

If the appeal fails, Duff will miss Saturday's game at Hull - a game the Clarets must win or be relegated.
