IPSWICH Town defender Alex Bruce has had his red card during Wednesday's 3-1 victory over Bristol City upheld by an FA Regulatory Commission.

Bruce will now serve a four-match ban, the dismissal being his second of the season, and will not be available for tomorrow's home Championship game against Cardiff.

The Irish international now won't be available for selection until the FA Cup third round tie against Chesterfield or Droylsden on January 3rd.
