Heart send off was 'tame', says Arnold

Central Coast coach Graham Arnold has labelled the send off of Melbourne defender Michael Beauchamp as "tame" in the Mariners 1-0 win on Friday night.

Heart coach John van't Schip and football operations manager John Diduilicia will review the footage before deciding whether to appeal the red card.

"It was pretty tame," Arnold said on Friday night questioning whether the send off should have drawn a penalty.

Van't Schip told AAP on Saturday he was hopeful that FFA would view the incident with an open mind.

"He didn't really hit anybody," van't Schip said at the Heart's recovery session at Terrigal Beach on Saturday.

"It was more like a reaction.

"I hope that the people who look at it will look at it open minded."

Heart take on Wellington next Sunday in Melbourne but van't Schip was not overly confident of having former Socceroo Josip Skoko.

"First thing he has to comeback fit," van't Schip said.

"Then we'll see if he can bring in some more experience, some more football in to the team."

For van't Schip Friday's game, result withstanding, was pleasing with regard to some passages of play and how he wants his players to apply game plans.

"We are training the way that I'm asking for (from the players) and in confronting the first three games I'm looking at how we've progressed," van't Schip said.

"I was quite happy with those games, there were good parts, the understanding was coming in the way they were playing.

"Last week we had a win but I already said to the boys that the game wasn't really that good.

"The three points were important and yesterday was I think a step back.

"We have to go back to the basic things that we talked about from the beginning and start all over again."
