Babayaro Date Set
Newcastle defender Celestine Babayaro will appeal against his red card at Aston Villa on Saturday.
The 27-year-old Nigerian was dismissed for, what the referee saw as a professional foul on Villa striker Milan Baros. But although the player did make contact, the ex-Chelsea defender feels Baros made a meal of it and was looking for the penalty.
Babayaro faces a two-match ban if he is unsuccessful and would miss the FA Cup clash with Southampton and the Premiership match against Charlton.
Babayaro's case will be heard on Thursday.
