Fulham centre-back and Chelsea loanee Tomas Kalas created an unusual Championship record when he got sent off after 39 seconds on the pitch in their 1-1 draw with Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
The youngster lounged a foul on Reading’s Mo Barrow as he went through on goal which was enough for referee Simon Hooper to issue him a straight red.
The Chelsea loanee found himself at fault when the two sides met in May’s Championship play-off semi-final second leg when his handball conceded what proved to be the decisive penalty for the Royals.
However, this did not deter Kalas’s team-mates as they battled back despite playing most of the game with 10 men, to get a 1-1 draw.
