Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher says Anthony Taylor was right to send off Davy Propper in Brighton's draw with Huddersfield on Saturday.

Propper was dismissed for a tackle on Jonathan Hogg in the 1-1 draw and Gallagher, speaking on Ref Watch on Sky Sports News, said he had spoken to other referees about the incident and they all felt it was a red card.

Dutch midfielder Propper felt it was a harsh decision but Huddersfield boss David Wagner said after the game it was a dangerous tackle.

Gallagher said: "He (Propper) has been given a red card because he has gone sideways and then caught him (Hogg) with his studs on the ankle.

"Both players slid in and I spoke to some other referees over the weekend and that was the conclusion - he got a red card because he went in with his studs showing and caught him on the ankle."
