Norwich City midfielder Darel Russell will serve his three-match ban after the Football Association dismissed his appeal against a red card.

Russell was given a straight red by referee Russell Booth during Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to Southampton.

The Canaries had appealed against the sending-off, which was criticised by City boss Paul Lambert, but this afternoon the FA threw their claim out.
