Cahill fails with ban appeal

Published Add your comment

Everton midfielder Tim Cahill has failed with an appeal against the red card he received in Saturday's Merseyside derby.

It means the Australian will serve a three-match suspension, starting with the Premier League game against Newcastle on Sunday.

Cahill was sent off for "serious foul play" by referee Mike Riley following a challenge on Xabi Alonso in Everton's 2-0 defeat by Liverpool.

The Football Association confirmed an independent regulatory commission had rejected Cahill's appeal.
