Greg Halford has lost his appeal against the red card he was shown during Portsmouth's 3-0 to Watford on New Year`s Day.

The versatile player, who has now finished his loan spell at Fratton Park and moved back to parent club Wolves, was dismissed in added time at Vicarage Road.

His three-match ban will start with Wolves' game against Chelsea on Wednesday.
