Central defender Toto Nsiala will miss Ipswich Town’s next three games after the appeal over his red card at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend was rejected.
The former Shrewsbury man was dismissed by Jeremy Simpson with 15 minutes remaining at Hillsborough following a tackle on Owls striker Fernando Forestieri, with replays showing he won the ball.
But that was not enough to overturn the decision, with the FA announcing today that the defender will serve a three-game ban,
He will miss this Sunday’s East Anglian Derby clash with Norwich before also sitting out the visit to Hull and home clash with Brentford.
An FA statement said: “Aristote Nsiala will miss Ipswich Town’s next three games through suspension after an Independent Regulatory Commission rejected his claim of wrongful dismissal for serious foul play against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.”
