Newcastle ace loses red card appeal

Published Add your comment

Newcastle midfielder Cheik Tiote will serve a three-match ban after his appeal against his red card during Saturday's FA Cup third-round defeat at Stevenage was dismissed.

The 24-year-old Ivorian was shown a straight red card by referee Andre Marriner for a lunging tackle on Jon Ashton in the 71st minute of the Magpies' 3-1 defeat at Broadhall Way.

A Football Association statement read: "At a regulatory commission hearing, a claim for wrongful dismissal from Newcastle United midfielder Cheik Tiote was rejected. As a result, Tiote's three-match suspension will remain in place."
