'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Harsh Says Hughton.

Chris Hughton thought that the sending-off of Curtis Davies went a long way to giving Cardiff all three points against City at the weekend.

The defender lasted just 63 minutes before referee Anthony Taylor showed him a straight red after bringing down Kenny Miller at the edge of the penalty area. The view the referee took is that he was the last man and he had to go.

Hughton insisted the dismissal of Davies was harsh.

'My first reaction was to look at Curtis and Curtis jumped up straight away from the incident and didn't feel anything because he touched the ball,' he said.

'I think there was enough doubt on the incident that you don't give a red card.

'Stephen Caldwell was in close proximity and I can't sit here and say there's definitely no incident, but there's enough doubt that you can't give a red card.

'The game very much hinged on two instances. Of course the sending off, but also I thought in the first half we coped very well with a very real threat in Miller and I was confident we could cope with it in the second half again.

'The sending-off does change things but we can't make the kind of mistakes that we made and expect not to get punished.'
