Ainswoth: It was not a red
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth disagreed with the decision to send off his captain in their 1-0 loss to AFC Wimbledon.
The Chairboys' skipper Stuart Lewis was given his marching orders in the 34th minute for what referee Gavin Ward regarded as a dangerous challenge - a decision that looked harsh.
With the visitors still reeling, Luke Moore headed in the only goal of the game to give Wimbledon their first win of the new season.
"It was not a sending-off in my opinion, but mine doesn't count and the referee's does," he said.
"All of my players didn't think it was one and I've spoken to Neal Ardley and he said 'very harsh.
"It's hard to play with 10 men, especially for 70 minutes, but the boys did themselves proud and until the last five minutes when they had a few shots on goal, you could see we were equal to them.
"The red card did come at a crucial time and they scored within two or three minutes of that and then it was very hard to get things in place.
"At half-time we sorted it out and we nullified their threat and a few players turned my head.
"I'll be without my skipper for three games - I know red cards have been rescinded in the past but I'll have to look at it on the video myself."
