Lee Johnson has reflected on Nathan Baker's red card, after the central defender received his marching orders against QPR.
The former Aston Villa defender caught Hoops midfielder Josh Scowen in the first half of the Sky Bet Championship clash on Saturday.
Referee Keith Stroud dished out a straight red card for the tackle, which Johnson initially felt was worthy of a yellow card.
City played out the majority of the game with ten men but goals from Famara Diédhiou and Joe Bryan ensured a 2-0 home victory.
Head coach Johnson told BCTV: "My instinct was it was a yellow card, all day long. I turned expecting to see a yellow card. Was it cynical? No because he's gone for the ball but the QPR player has nipped in front of him.
"I don't know (if we will appeal) to be honest. To appeal is always a difficult one because you don't want to be retrospectively given another game, so we will have to see what the referee's report says.
"We will review the incident and then make a decision."
City travel to the Macron Stadium next Friday (February 2nd, 8pm kick-off) as their Sky Bet Championship journey continues.
Johnson added: "It's another big game, a difficult game because of the ways they play. They are a physical side and the boys will have to be at their best to get a result. We need a good week now.
"That's why I was so pleased with the players against QPR. After the Lord Mayor's Show against Manchester City game, the boys were energetic, bright and they showed how much they wanted the win.
"The remaining games of the season we go into with an even tank on the opponents and that's where we can be dangerous. We have fit, talented players, as well as a strong bench now."
