Struijk was shown a straight red card for his challenge on Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott, which left the teenager with a dislocated ankle.


After deliberation, the referee dismissed him at Elland Road on Sunday and he is now facing a three-match ban for his actions.



However, many observers felt that the challenge did not warrant a red card and many expected Leeds to appeal against the dismissal.


And it has been claimed that Leeds are set to submit official paperwork to the FA in their attempts to rescind the red card that the defender received.



Leeds believe that the challenge was in no way a dangerous tackle and Elliott’s injury was an unfortunate accident.


The Whites are confident that the FA will take a closer look at the incident again and will favour the player.



Struijk contacted Elliott after the game and reiterated that his tackle was in no way made to hurt him.
