Manager Steve Davis has sympathy for striker Vadaine Oliver following his weekend sending-off.
The 22-year-old was dismissed for two bookable offences during the 1-0 win against Crawley Town on Saturday. He now receives a one-game suspension and so misses the forthcoming trip to Coventry City.
“When the whistle went I honestly thought that Vadaine had been fouled and was just trying to see if he had given a penalty or a free-kick,” Davis revealed to Crewe’s official website. “I couldn’t really tell if it was inside or outside the box but there was no doubt in my mind that it wasn’t a foul.
“When he went up to Vadaine and showed him the second yellow card, I was really surprised,” he added. “I was in shock and I think the majority of the crowd were.”
