Leicester City have lost their appeal to overturn the red card Patrick Kisnorbo received against Hereford on Tuesday. This means that Kisnorbo will have to miss the next three Championship games.
The decision will be a blow for Leicester City as Kisnorbo has been one of Leicester`s best players so far this season. He has managed to continue his good partnership with Paddy McCarthy from last season, as well popping up at the other end of the pitch and scoring some bullet headers.
Leicester fans will be upset at Kisnorbo`s sending off because there was no need for the central defender to get himself involved in any trouble. Leicester were comfortably winning the game against Hereford 3-1 and the game was entering the final minutes.
It`s not the first time the Kisnorbo has been sent off for losing his cool, towards the end of last season he was sent off against Coventry. After recklessly diving into a challenge two footed.
Ironically Rob Kelly stated in the Leicester Mercury only at the beginning of the week how Leicester had made a concentrated effort on cutting down needless bookings Maybe Rob Kelly will need to reiterate these words to the 25 year old Australian.
Kisnorbo`s ban will start against Colchester on Saturday and he will also miss the games against Birmingham City and against Southampton. With Kisnorbo set to miss the next three games, it could give Gareth McAuley an opportunity to show the Leicester fans what he is capable of.
The tall central defender is yet to play for Leicester in the Championship and Rob Kelly might call on the former Lincoln City defender to step into Kisnorbo`s shoes. Whoever Kelly picks to replace Kisnorbo, the game against Colchester is an important game and the player must be able to quickly fit into the team.
