Nicky Butt had hardly been on the pitch for two minutes, replacing the injured Dyer, when he took offence to a bad tackle from Soan and reacted strongly by pushing him. The referee had no hesitation in giving Butt a straight red card. Soan, who had only been booked three minutes earlier, was yellow carded for the tackle which meant he got a red card as well.
