O'Hara, who was sent off during Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Huddersfield, will miss Tuesday night's game against Hull City followed by the clashes with Charlton and Burnley.

The midfielder reacted angrily to a challenge from Terriers substitute Keith Southern and subsequently pushed him, leading to his dismissal.

Wolves had accepted the decision itself but were unhappy with the mandatory three-match ban and asked the FA for leniency in the matter.

Under FA rules a club may appeal the severity of a suspension if they feel there are extenuating circumstances, but in this instance the FA decided to reject the appeal and O'Hara will have to serve the full three-game ban.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
