Stoke have lost their appeal to the Football Association against defender Robert Huth's red card received during Saturday's home clash with Sunderland and the player must now serve a three-game ban.

Huth was sent off by referee Martin Atkinson after 45 minutes of the Barclays Premier League encounter at the Britannia Stadium for a challenge on Blacks Cats midfielder David Meyler. Stoke boss Tony Pulis opted to appeal against the dismissal after claiming there was "no intent" in Huth's challenge and that he "was nowhere near the Sunderland player."

But an independent regulatory commission have rejected the appeal. A statement on the FA website read: "An independent regulatory commission has dismissed the claim of wrongful dismissal of Stoke City's Robert Huth."
