Fulham succumbed to a second-straight defeat in the Championship last night, losing 2-1 at Preston North End.
Sean Maguire had given the home side an unexpected lead after 23-minutes and ended their run of four games without scoring.
Five minutes later and Fulham’s Dennis Odoi was shown a straight red card for jumping in late on Preston’s Patrick Bauer – Odoi was never going to win he ball and instead decided to plant his shoulder in the face of the German, resulting in his 11th career red card.
Odoi wasn’t the only one though – Joe Rafferty was also shown a straight red in the first-half for a flying tackle on Joe Bryan.
After the break Preston doubled their lead through David Nugent – the 34-year-old scoring his first goal for the club since 2007 having returned in the summer.

Aleksandar Mitrovic added a consolation for Fulham with ten to go but Preston held on for the win, ending their winless run and condemning Fulham to a second defeat in three days.
But Fulham fans were most frustrated with the Belgian last night – his red card was reckless and changed the game completely. Here we take a look at the Fulham reaction to Odoi’s red card last night:
That is an absolute stupid challenge, what is he even doing there? He’s an experienced head and should know better. The team has lost it. Won 4 on the bounce and should have lost 3 of them and we’re gonna lose heavily tonight

Denis Odoi is a liability. Could have cost Fulham the play-off against Aston Villa. Got sent off against Brentford.

There is no way that’s a red

tough on one of our most in form players

Typical Odoi really. Why he keeps being played bemuses me. Tackle best suited to a rugby match. Few games out for him is the only bright side for us!

What was he honestly doing. I'm genuinely getting so sick of our defenders not caring. Why is it only Ream trying
