Henry would like the right to appeal

Henry would like the right to appeal

Wolves skipper Karl Henry misses this Saturday's game at Huddersfield through suspension.

During the opening ten games of the season Henry was cautioned five times, which has resulted in his one game ban this weekend.

Unlike the system when a player is sent off, players and clubs are not allowed to appeal against bookings to the Football Association, well they are, but only in cases of mistaken identity.

Unfortunately, none of the five bookings were meant for anyone else, so Henry has to take his one game ban without the right of appeal.

A reflective Henry hopes that referees will get the majority of decisions correct as he doesn't want to miss many more games through suspension.

"I think it`s unfair you can`t appeal a yellow card because I`m now suspended and don`t feel I should be," said Henry to the Express & Star.

He continued: "I think they`ve come far too easily and I`m sure if somebody looked at them - or an independent panel looked at them - they`d agree. One of them at Peterborough was particularly hard to take.

"I just hope referees can make the right decisions because I want to put tackles in and when I get booked - sometimes harshly in my opinion - I`m walking a tightrope, All these decisions add up to the suspension and me missing games and I don`t want to be missing games."

Vital Wolves Comment: So obviously Henry thinks his yellow card against Peterborough was harsh, but what about the rest? Do you think he deserved to be cautioned against Aldershot, Leicester, Crystal Palace or Blackburn?
