Published Add your comment

Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has lost his appeal for wrongful dismissal against Aston Villa.

The 27-year-old was dismissed for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity in the final seconds of Wednesday´s 4-4 Barclays Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge when he was adjudged to have handled the ball on the line.

He will serve a one-match suspension with immediate effect, ruling him out of Saturday´s home game with Newcastle.
