"I have seen it on the tape and there doesn't seem to be a lot apart from him having his hand around his chest, neck area," said Grayson. "He has not thrown a punch or anything, but I suppose when you do lift your arms in that sort of area there is any interpretation the referee wants to take and he has decided to send him off.
"It is hugely disappointing because Tresor has been sent off for something like that already this season."
There have been cases where subs have not even lasted as long as Kandol. Sheffield United's Keith Gillespie, in January, 2007, and Walter Boyd for Swansea, in 2000 are both are timed at zero seconds. Gillespie elbowed Stephen Hunt in the face and saw red before play resumed, while Boyd did the same.
In 1989, Barnsley's Ian Banks was sent off while warming up to come on.
