Josh Brownhill received a straight red card during Saturday’s loss of Burnley to Crystal Palace.
James Trafford set the 28-year-old up with a reckless pass on the outside of the Burnley box, and the player was ejected.

Before the pass was even made, Jefferson Lerma was already breathing down his neck, which gave the Palace player the opportunity to slip ahead and collect the ball.
With time running out, Brownhill had to strike decisively or Lerma would have scored easily.

Lewis Smith was forced to show a straight red card to referee Brownhill after he forced Lerma to the ground.

The Burnley Express has been informed by the FA that Brownhill was sent off and will serve a one-game suspension for obstructing a clear goal-scoring opportunity.

Brownhill’s red card summed up Clarets’s terrible day at work at Selhurst Park once again.

Ten minutes before the half, the incident occurred, and Vincent Kompany’s team was already having difficulty getting a footing in the game.

Taking full use of their man advantage, Oliver Glasner’s team scored three goals in just over ten minutes in the second half, easily winning 3-0.
