Fulham have confirmed that they have lodged an appeal against Luis Boa Morte's red card received at Craven Cottage last weekend against Everton.

The Portuguese striker was ordered off for his part in the 77th-minute brawl that erupted when he put in a strong challenge on Toffees defender David Weir. According to reports Weir, the Everton player also red carded, is claiming that the Fulham striker bit him during the brawl at Craven Cottage on Saturday 8th Dec.

Boa Morte is now facing a four-match ban after being sent off for the second time this season.

Fulham's players and management staff lined up to defend Boa Morte after the match, and Fulham assistant boss Christian Damiano said: "He was unlucky to be sent off, just like he was earlier in the season. We didn't think it was right."

Striker Louis Saha added: "Luis was very unlucky to be sent off. He was still on the ground and a foot went in on his head. That was not fair play and I was very upset. "If it was me I would maybe have stood up and done something bad. So I think Luis did well."
