Yannick Bolasie: Red-card appeal rejected

Crystal Palace midfielder Yannick Bolasie has lost his appeal against the red card shown to him during their 1-0 win at Hull on Saturday.

The DR Congo international was dismissed at the KC Stadium after a challenge on Jake Livermore.

Referee Anthony Taylor's decision to send him off appeared harsh and Palace duly lodged an appeal.

But the FA has rejected that and upheld his three-match suspension, although they did not deem the appeal to be frivolous.

"The claim in relation to Bolasie, who was dismissed for serious foul play during his side's match at Hull City on Saturday, was unsuccessful," read a brief statement on the FA's official website.

"Therefore, his three-match ban remains with immediate effect."

Bolasie will miss Saturday's trip to fellow Premier League strugglers Norwich, as well as home games with West Ham and Cardiff.
