Huth appeal extended

Huth appeal extended

Stoke City have been given an extension to appeal the retrospective action taken against Robert Huth for violent conduct.

The German centre half appeared to hit Philipps Senderos in the face with a forearm against Fulham last weekend, but referee lee Probert didn`t see the incident in the game, allowing the F.A. to take retrospective action.

The Potters have been granted extra time so that they can study the evidence and contemplate an appeal.

It is unlikely Stoke will appeal the decision though as the television footage of the incident is quite conclusive, and Tony Pulis wouldn`t want to risk an extra game ban for the 28-year-old because of a frivolous appeal.

If Huth receives a three game ban, he will miss Stoke`s fixtures against West Ham United, Newcastle and West Brom, meaning Pulis will have to deputise either Marc Wilson or Geoff Cameron in an unfamiliar centre half role.

Marc Wilson has played at centre half before at Portsmouth, whilst Cameron plays at centre half for his national team U.S.A.
