Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Davy Propper believes that his sending off against Huddersfield Town was harsh, as the two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
 
The Dutchman was sent off after a challenge with Jonathan Hogg in the second half and stressed that he only had eyes for the ball.
 
He said, “I think it was [a harsh decision]. We both went for the ball. Of course, the ball turned around and was behind me but I didn't touch him really hard.
 
"I didn't step on his ankle or foot, I feel it's a little bit harsh. I think it's my first red card in my career; it's not my intention to injure someone.
 
"Of course, it's very disappointing. I don't think I deserve to be out for three games, but it's not my decision.”
 
The Dutchman admits that the team’s performance was below par on the day, but insists a point is not too bad a result taking everything into account and reiterated that survival remains within the team’s grasp.
 
"It’s a little bit disappointing, as this was a big chance for us and now we have to look to get three points in the next game.
 
"We’re more frustrated that we didn’t play well. We started very well but in the end, we didn't deserve to win the game.
 
"After the red card, a draw is not a bad result. I should have scored one, but after the game went to 1-1, we lost a bit of a grip on the game. They were a little bit stronger.
 
“We still have a good chance [regarding stay up]. But we have to get some points of course and this was a good opportunity to do so.”
