Newcastle United confirmed last night ahead of the League Cup third round tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers that the red card appeal for Vernon Anita had been unsuccessful.

Newcastle lodged an appeal for wrongful dismissal for Anita following his sending off for serious foul play during the game against Wolves in the Championship last weekend.

The Independent Regulatory Commission held Newcastle’s appeal but dismissed it.

Therefore the player will now serve the expected three match ban he was handed.
