Forest Cohen Appeal Rejected

05 April 2011 03:52
Nottingham Forest have lost their appeal against Chris Cohen's straight red card in Saturday's defeat at Elland Road. The Football Association have upheld the decision by referee Mark Halsey to send off the midfielder for a tackle on George McCartney during the first half. Cohen now faces a three-game ban and misses matches against Reading and Burnley at home and an away fixture with Norwich. Forest have also been handed a £5,000 fine for having six players cautioned.
