Leicester City Appeals Jamie Vardy Red Card

Leicester City have confirmed they have lodged an appeal against Jamie Vardy's red card against Stoke City. Sources had revealed the Premier League champions were to challenge the dismissal earlier on Monday, and Leicester have now issued a statement claiming for an instance of wrongful dismissal
Leicester are expecting the Football Association to come to a decision on the appeal in the coming days. 
Vardy was shown a straight red card for by referee Craig Pawson for a two-footed challenge on Mame Biram Diouf in the 28th minute of Saturday's 2-2 draw at the bet365 Stadium.  If the Foxes fail in their appeal, Vardy will miss the Boxing Day visit of Everton, the home game with West Ham on New Year's Eve and a trip to Middlesbrough on January 2.

Leicester are already expected to receive an automatic fine from the FA after having six players booked during the fixture, including five in the final seven minutes of the first half. Despite having to play more than an hour with 10 men following Vardy's dismissal, Leicester fought back from 2-0 down to draw after Leonardo Ulloa and Daniel Amartey scored in the final 16 minutes.
