Hartlepool United manager Dave Challinor 'comfortable' following red card against Ebbsfleet United as he prepares for trip to Sutton

Dave Challinor is not concerned about any repercussions following his red card in last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Ebbsfleet United at Victoria Park as he prepares to appeal the decision.

The Pools boss was sent off for a coming together with Ebbsfleet defender Ayo Obileye following the full-time whistle.

Obileye was also shown a straight red card for his actions at The Vic as Challinor confronted the Fleet defender who was ‘trying to antagonise a volatile situation' with the Hartlepool supporters.

And as Pools plan for their trip to Sutton United this Saturday (3pm kick-off), Challinor is still waiting on feedback from last weekend as he prepares a weighs up a potential appeal.

“I’ve heard nothing in terms of a report,” he said.

“I’ll wait to see what comes in and I can only appeal based on what is written in there. I’m adamant in the fact that I’ve done nothing in terms of violent conduct or whatever it is reported as, so we’ll see where that is and see what the wording of the report is that we get.

“I spoke to the referee and linesman after the game and it was the linesman who reported seeing something with the Ebbsfleet player.

“I’m not going to sit here and lie because I know there are videos out there and I’m comfortable with where I am in my situation.

“We will see what comes back and act upon that.”
