FA throw out Khizanishvili appeal

27 October 2009 05:27
Newcastle United have lost their appeal against the three-match ban handed to Georgia defender Zurab Khizanishvili.The Magpies did not contest the red card shown to the 27-year-old for grappling with Billy Sharp during Saturday's 2-1 win over Doncaster. But they felt the offence did not warrant a three-match suspension. However, the Football Association rejected the appeal and Khizanishvili will miss the games against Sheffield United, Peterborough and Preston.
