Chelsea skipper John Terry was sent off in Chelsea’s 4-1 FA Cup victory over Peterborough United.
Antonio Conte has revealed the red card would be appealed but former Premier League referee Graham Poll thinks sending Terry off was the right decision.
“Kevin Friend was correct to dismiss John Terry despite the former England captain’s protest of innocence,” Poll told Daily Mail.
“Peterborough’s Lee Angol was clean through with a clear and obvious goal scoring opportunity with just Terry to get past.
“The Blues captain went to ground which resulted in Angol tripping over him.
“Terry claimed he had slipped but intent wasn’t relevant.
“The fact that his prone body stopped his opponent progress meant Friend had no option but to get his red card out.”
