Leicester striker Jamie Vardy will miss three matches after an appeal against his red card in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with stoke city was rejected.
The 29-year-old’s wrongful dismissal claim was rejected by the Football Association and he misses games against Everton, West Ham and Middlesbrough.
The England forward was sent off by referee Craig Pawson in the 28th minute for a tackle on Stoke’s Mame Diouf.
The upholding of Vardy’s ban means he will be unavailable for the games against Everton, West Ham United and Middlesbrough. He could return for the FA Cup tie with Everton on 7 January.
