Trippier appeal rejected

20 November 2012

Clarets failed to overturn defender's red card

The Clarets’ appeal against Kieran Trippier’s sending off against Charlton Athletic last Saturday has been rejected.

Trippier was dismissed after a goalbound shot struck him on the arm as he stood on the line.

Burnley claimed that the handball was not deliberate and appealed to the FA accordingly.

However, an appeal hearing on Tuesday upheld the original decision of referee Robert Madley and the defender, an ever-present in the Championship so far this season, will therefore serve a one-match ban and miss the Clarets' trip to Hull City on Saturday.
