Huddersfield striker Alan Lee insists he was not to blame for Alex Bruce's red card on Saturday - despite being labelled a cheat by Hull boss Steve Bruce.
Hull's 2-0 win ended on a sour note as Alex Bruce was dismissed after the final whistle for lashing out at Lee, who appeared to have caught him with an elbow to the face moments before.
After the match, Steve Bruce, Alex's father, revealed they would appeal the dismissal and then criticised Lee, claiming his actions were "cowardly" and insinuating that he had deliberately got his son sent off.
However, Lee later said: "I put my arm up to protect myself. He reckoned I elbowed him, but if I caught him - it was his fault. Why was he trying to run across me? I'm not trying to close him down. Then he reacted afterwards by flying into me."
