Terry hit with one-match ban after red card appeal fails

10 January 2017 04:53

John Terry will serve a one-match ban after Chelsea's appeal against his sending off in the FA Cup tie against Peterborough was rejected.

Defender Terry, making his first start since the EFL Cup exit at West Ham in October and first appearance since November, was adjudged to be last man when he fouled Lee Angol and was shown a straight red card by referee Kevin Friend in Sunday's game.

The Premier League club put in an appeal, which the Football Association confirmed on Tuesday afternoon had been unsuccessful, meaning the suspension stands, ruling Terry out of the match against champions Leicester on Saturday.
