Reading boss Ruben Selles believes the English Football League [EFL] should 'change their rules' on appealing suspensions as club captain Andy Yiadom looks set to be suspended for the next two matches following a pair of controversial bookings.

The Royals lost 2-1 to Derby County at Pride Park, with referee Craig Breakspear at the centre of attention for three dubious decisions which went against Selles' side.

Yiadom picked up two bookings, both of which looked harsh, and will sit out two matches against Cambridge United and Northampton Town.

In the case of a straight red, clubs can appeal to get the decision overturned, however, currently, that is not the case for those picking up two yellow cards.

Speaking after the match on the dismissal of his skipper, Selles commented: "I need to speak with our legal team tomorrow, but I think the footage is that obvious that we should be able to do it [appeal]. If we can’t do it, then maybe the EFL should change their rules."

The Football Association and Professional Game Match Officials Limited [PGMOL] are the bodies responsible for refereeing in English leagues.

Both of the Rams' goals were also controversial, with Dwight Gayle seemingly offside for the opener and the former Newcastle United striker handled the ball in the build-up to the awarding of a penalty, which Conor Hourihane dispatched.

"Derby are a really good team and the game was equal in the moment, but the decisions weren’t on our side," Selles summed up in the East Midlands.
