WANDERERS have confirmed they will not be appealing the red card issued to Marc Wilson at Ipswich Town.

Phil Parkinson and his staff were keen to take a detailed view of the incident, which occurred in the 34th minute of the first half at Portman Road.

Wilson was adjudged by referee Stephen Martin to have fouled Ipswich striker Kayden Jackson, denying him a goal-scoring opportunity.

“I thought it was a very harsh decision,” Parkinson said after the final whistle. “I thought so at the time and I have seen Kayden Jackson play and he’s quick but he does throw himself to the floor and from where I was there was minimal contact. I have seen in back since and I think he is very, very unlucky.

“From a very good referee – and he really is, normally – I think he has made the wrong call.

“I don’t think there is a foul. There’s always going to be come contact when two players run together but I think Marc does everything he can not to make contact. It was a tough call to make that one.”

After reviewing footage, however, Wanderers have decided against arguing their case with the Football Association’s disciplinary committee.

A statement released by the club this afternoon said: “Bolton Wanderers Football Club will not be appealing the red card which was issued to Marc Wilson during Saturday’s game at Ipswich Town.

“Although club officials believe the referee’s decision to dismiss the defender was harsh, the club has reluctantly decided not to contest the sending off.

“Wilson will now miss Saturday’s game against Derby County through suspension.”
