West Ham have confirmed they will not be appealing against the red card shown to Carlton Cole in Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.

Cole, 24, was sent off by referee Phil Dowd for an injury-time foul on Arsenal midfielder Alexander Song.

West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola said after the game he did not feel the challenge was worthy of a red card - but the club have decided not to take the matter any further.

Cole will be suspended for Wednesday night's game at Manchester United plus the Barclays Premier League fixtures against Middlesbrough and Everton.
