Pompey fans react to Lowe's red card
Jamal Lowe saw red on Saturday following a challenge on Rocdale's Jamie Allen on 81 minutes.
It was a tackle that has generated much debate on our Facebook page Portsmouth FC – The News and on portsmouth.co.uk.
Here’s what fans have been saying on referee Lee Probert’s decision to give the Pompey man his marching orders...
n From where I was sat, and after seeing it a few times since, it was never a red card.
They both went in high – just Lowe was quicker to get in there.
Yellow card definitely.
n From my view initially it was a 50/50 challenge, but Lowe followed through with a straight leg and caught him high on the shin.
I’m sure it’s out of character for Jamal but I think the ref made the correct call.
n Has to be an appeal. How could he have made contact if their player wasn’t doing exactly the same?
Poor refereeing I reckon, both or neither!
n I think the referee made the right decisions on Saturday and I think he had a good game.
Looking at the Lowe incident again, it was not as nailed on as I first thought.
It was not malicious, but it was dangerous and the decision was, as in the first incident, just about right.
n It’s not even a yellow for me let alone a red, but this is the FA so they’ll find a way to keep the ban in place.
n It’s a blatant red card, it would be ridiculous to appeal that. It’s a nasty challenge, which deserves to be punished – Lowe will just have to learn from it.
n It could just as easily have been Lowe who came a cropper, they both had studs up.
n Looked like they both had studs up to me. Thought it was harsh on first viewing but with the current state of the game regarding tackling probably be upheld.
n Looked harsh to me at the time.
n Tackle above the knee. Red all day.
