FA dismiss Portsmouth red card appeal after Jack Whatmough's Lincoln dismissal
Pompey’s appeal against Jack Whatmough’s red card against Lincoln has been rejected.
The FA regulatory commission this afternoon backed referee Sam Purkiss’ decision to dismiss the defender for a first-half challenge on Jorge Grant on Tuesday night.
Whatmough will now serve a three-match ban starting against Charlton this weekend.
Pompey boss Kenny Jackett: ‘We felt we had a reasonable case but we, of course, accept the decision of the referee and the panel.’
