Everton are still waiting to hear if their appeal against David
Weir's sending off for the reserves last week has been
successful or not.
The Blues defender faces a three-match ban after being shown red
for an altercation with Lorenzo Amoruso in the 83rd minute of the
0-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers.
David Moyes witnessed the incident at Morecambe's Christie
Park and was outraged at the decision that could leave Weir
sidelined for the Premiership games against Middlesbrough,
Newcastle and Tottenham.
The Blues Boss instructed an appeal to be lodged immediately and
the Football Association have confirmed that a tape of the incident
has now been sent on to the Video Advisory Panel.
"We have no news on the appeal," said Moyes. "We
have made an appeal and are awaiting a reply and hopefully we will
hear something later in the week."
Weir, meanwhile, is back in reserve action tonight, kick-off
7.00pm, as the Blues face Leeds United's second string at Haig
