Delph Red Card Appeal Lost

Delph Red Card Appeal Lost
Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph has lost his appeal to have the red card picked up in the game against Sunderland overturned.

Delph saw red after a tackle on Jordi Gomez early in the second half of the game and that had manager Paul Lambert denying his side was a dirty one and that he thought the player had been dealt with harshly.

But the Football Association today confirmed it had upheld the ban, a statement read: 'A claim by Aston Villa that the suspension for a red card for Fabian Delph was excessive has been rejected by an FA Regulatory Commission.

'Delph was sent off for serious foul play against Sunderland on 28 December 2014. His three-match suspension will commence with immediate effect.'
