Luton have appealed to the Football Association to over-turn Lathaniel Rowe-Turner’s red card at Barrow on Saturday.
The defender was shown a straight red card following an incident in injury time in the 1-0 defeat at Holker Street as he tangled with goalscorer Adam Boyes.
The club will now await the FA’s decision, which is due later this week.
New signing Steve McNulty, who was right by the incident, believes Boyes should have followed Rowe-Turner if he had to go.
He said: “I was right there. I don’t think it was a sending off. Their player looks to me as if he’s had him in a headlock and he couldn’t get off him.
“All their players surround the referee and I think the referee and the linesman were a bit weak and sent him off. In my eyes it wasn’t a sending off.
“If he’s sent him off he should send the other lad off.”
