SHEFFIELD UNITED have confirmed that they will not appeal against the red card picked up by Che Adams in Saturday’s FA Cup second-round win over Oldham Athletic.

The former Ilkeston player received his marching orders following a challenge on Latics captain Liam Kelly.

The video evidence is inconclusive. There was a tangle of legs and the referee has made a decision and he gave a red card to Che and he’s at a stage of his career where he is learning about lots of things.

Blades chief Nigel Adkins said after the tie that he would wait until receiving the referee’s report before deciding whether to appeal and has now elected not to do so.

Adams, 19, will now miss the forthcoming games against Coventry City, Scunthorpe United and Wigan Athletic and will be available once again for the Yorkshire derby at home to Bradford City on December 28.

Assistant-boss Andy Crosby said: “There will be no appeal.

“The video evidence is inconclusive. There was a tangle of legs and the referee has made a decision and he gave a red card to Che and he’s at a stage of his career where he is learning about lots of things.”

Meanwhile, Bob Harris is back in training after being taken off with a head injury in the weekend win over Oldham, with the defender stretchered off and taken to hospital.

Checks have revealed that the Scot is okay and he will be monitored over the coming days - with the seven-day protocol over concussion potentially allowing him to feature against Coventry on Sunday, with the Latics game being staged last Saturday
