Sheridan slams Blanchard

Plymouth boss John Sheridan revealed his fury at defender Maxime Blanchard for an 'absolutely stupid' red card.

The Frenchman picked up a second yellow card in the 50th minute of Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Oxford for pulling back Dave Kitson.

He will now serve a one-match ban for the trip to Bury on Friday and Sheridan could not hide his anger.

Sheridan told Herald Sport: "It was pathetic, absolutely stupid. He wasn't organised from the throw-in.

"I don't want to speak to him because I would lose my rag.

"It's an absolutely pathetic sending off. It was a stupid foul for the first one and then he has pulled someone back who was running away from him."
