INVERNESS Caledonian Thistle manager Duncan Ferguson says they will appeal the first yellow card Cammy Kerr received before getting sent off in the 1-0 defeat to Partick Thistle yesterday.

Kerr was booked for simulation in the first half before receiving a second yellow card in the second half for committing a foul which led to him being sent off.

Although yellow cards in most cases can’t be appealed, SFA disciplinary rules state any booking received for simulation can be appealed.

At a SFA disciplinary tribunal In January, Alan Forrest of Hearts successfully appealed his caution for simulation in their match against Ross County on December 30.

Hearts also attempted to appeal a yellow card for simulation against Lawrence Shankland on March 16. However, his appeal was dismissed.

Ferguson says after reviewing video footage of the incident, he believes contact was made which led to Kerr going to ground and a foul was made.

He says they will be appealing the booking and are confident they will be successful.

He said: “It is a clear free kick, he might not have saw it, but we all saw it. We are going to appeal, we lost 1-0 and are fighting for our lives.

He said: “It was a clear free kick, it is not two yellow cards. We will appeal it and we will win the appeal. I have looked it back, there was connection.”
