The Bolton News:


ALEX Baptiste was sent off at Yeovil for a professional foul and will now miss Tuesday night’s game against his former club Blackpool.

The Wanderers defender was handed a straight red by referee Darren Deadman for bringing down Glovers’ winger Kevin Dawson in the 80th minute at Huish Park.

Deadman initially waved away the home side’s appeals but later went to his assistant, who had flagged immediately for a spot kick.

But was it a penalty? Was it a sending off? And was the referee right to leave the decision to his assistant?
