Penney, who joined the Bundesliga 2 side on a season-long loan deal last week, was sent off following two bookable offences in St Pauli's 2-1 win over Holstein Kiel tonight. The 21-year-old was dismissed deep into added on time as Jos Luhukay's side edged a hard-fought tussle after second half strikes from James Lawrence and Christian Conteh.

It was the first red card of Penney's fledgling career.

Penney, a graduate of Wednesday's youth system, made 17 appearances for the Championship club last season but not featured this campaign.
