Crystal Palace have appealed the red card shown to captain Luka Milivojevic in their defeat to Derby County in the FA Cup third round.  

Milivojevic clashed with Derby midfielder Tom Huddlestone and not only kicked out at him, but also moved his head towards the former Tottenham man.

Referee Michael Oliver watched a replay of an incident between the two players and five minutes later overruled his original decision of a yellow card to send off the Eagles skipper midway through the second half.
