Norwich City manager Glenn Roeder has decided not to appeal defender John Kennedy's sending off against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

The on-loan Celtic man was given a straight red card for tangling with striker Leon Clarke with nine minutes of Saturday's game remaining and Roeder had said after the game he would look at the incident before deciding whether to appeal referee Tony Bates'decision.

However, the FA confirmed no appeal had been received by Monday's deadline and Kennedy will receive a one-match suspension, meaning he will miss Sunday's East Anglian derby with Ipswich Town at Carrow Road.

The City boss asked for the hearing after being sent to the stands following an incident in the tunnel at half-time of the match at Derby on October 28.
