CHERRIES youngsters Nnamdi Ofoborh and Kyle Taylor both saw red for their respective loan clubs on Saturday.

Ofoborh had been introduced as a substitute to replace Wycombe’s Matt Bloomfield after a clash of heads against Portsmouth in League One.

But the Nigerian youth international was dismissed after 54 minutes of his side’s 1-0 victory for a late challenge on Tom Naylor.

The tackle sparked a fracas on the touchline at Adams Park, with Pompey striker Ellis Harrison also dismissed after picking up his second booking for a push in the aftermath.

Adebayo Akinfenwa netted from the penalty spot to give Wycombe all three points.

In quotes published by the Evening Express, Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “Nnamdi is in tears in the dressing room but there is no need. He is part of this family and we will back anything he does.

“The tackle was not malicious, was not dangerous but nowadays it is tough for the referees as they have to make a decision.

“I thought we deserved the win but it was a very tight game that hinged on the red cards.”

In League Two, midfielder Taylor picked up a second booking with four minutes remaining of Forest Green’s goalless draw with Stevenage.

Asked about the red card, Forest Green boss Mark Cooper told the club website: “If that’s a sending off then it should have been six-a-side at the end.”

In America, Cherries midfielder Emerson Hyndman scored in his loan club’s 3-1 victory over San Jose Earthquakes, guaranteeing them a home clash in the play-offs.
