SHEFFIELD Wednesday have lost their appeal against the red card issued to Jose Semedo in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at the Reebok.
The Portuguese midfielder will now serve a three-match ban after an FA disciplinary panel upheld Chris Foy’s decision to issue a straight red for his tackle on Whites captain Jay Spearing.
Owls boss Dave Jones claimed at the time that there had been “nothing wrong” with the challenge on halfway, which left Spearing nursing a swollen ankle.
