I think AA said on interview that the ref said Cassidy was sent off because he didn't touch the ball. It looks from the video he does get the ball first. Would what they ref said make a difference in any appeal, or would it purely go down on the lunge/force of the tackle etc?
Zero difference the report is just a tick box. Sent off for serious foul play.

Just a slight word of caution the above is what Alun Armstrong said the referee said not necessarily what was actually said.

The onus is on Darlington to prove it definitively does not meet the definition of a red card.

I realise that, I should have made it more clear in my post. I just wondered assuming the ref had said that if it made a difference. As it doesn’t the ref probably shouldn’t really have said it because it just means we’re likely to have any appeal dismissed. Although the red seems harsh, is there enough in the video evidence to get it overturned, I suspect not.
