Father and son both sent off for Forest Green in League Two match

Charlie Cooper was handed his marching orders on Monday.

It was a case of like son, like father on Monday as a Forest Green player and his manager both received red cards within moments of each other in a League Two match in England.

Rovers player Charlie Cooper -- a reported target of Middlesbrough -- was sent off with a straight red card for a bad foul in the 39th minute of his team's game against Wycombe Wanderers.

And in protesting the decision, Forest Green's manager -- and Cooper's father, Mark -- was promptly sent to the stands by referee Antony Coggins.

Forest Green were behind 1-0 at that stage and ended up losing 2-1 to stay bottom of the Football League in the fourth tier.
