Sky Sports is reporting that Isaac Hayden has avoided any retrospective action from the FA for his straight red card at Leicester City on Sunday.
Isaac also reportedly asked “What’s the point in playing?” while leaving the pitch. Sky Sports says the FA did not take any action for that since Isaac did not question the integrity of the officials.
After the match, Steve Bruce made the following comments about the sending off:
“I’ve got no complaints, the red card was a poor challenge.
“Maybe back in my day you might get away with that but in today’s game then I’ve got no argument.”
Hayden will receive the standard three-match ban. This leaves Newcastle in a bit of a lurch with Jonjo Shelvey likely out for the Manchester United match this weekend with a hamstring injury.
We would like to see young Matty Longstaff drafted into the side at St James Park on Sunday. Matty has reportedly been very impressive in training and would be a more natural replacement for Hayden than Ki Sung-yueng.
Giving the 19-year-old his Premier League debut alongside his brother Sean and at St James Park would be a proud moment for the local lad. It would also be something special for the Newcastle fans who have had far too little to cheer about this season.
