Ashley Cole and Zat Knight appeal red cards from Chelsea-Aston Villa game

Ashley Cole and Zat Knight appeal red cards from Chelsea-Aston Villa game

Chelsea defender Ashley Cole and Aston Villa's Zat Knight both appealed to the Football Association Thursday to have their red cards from Wednesday's match overturned.
Both were sent off during the two teams' 4-4 Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge. Knight was ejected in the 44th minute for a challenge on Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack, while Cole was shown a red card in the 90th for handball.
Both fouls led to penalty kicks, which were converted.
An FA regulatory commission will consider both appeals on Friday. A red card normally brings an automatic three-match ban.
