Wolves are unhappy with the Football Association's decision to reject their appeal against Nenad Milijas' red card.

The Serbia midfielder was dismissed in Tuesday's Barclays Premier League draw at Arsenal following a challenge on Mikel Arteta, a decision Wolves felt was "hugely disproportionate". They appealed to the Football Association only to see the referee's original call upheld.

That means the midfielder faces a three-match ban, taking in games against Bolton, Chelsea and Birmingham, in the FA Cup, and in response to the decision, Wolves club secretary Richard Skirrow released a statement which read: "We are hugely disappointed with (Thursday's) ruling."
