Portsmouth striker John Marquis to serve ban after Shrewsbury red card appeal is rejected

John Marquis’ appeal for his red card at Shrewsbury has been dismissed.

The FA’s regulatory commission has rejected the Blues’ bid to have his dismissal overturned for his challenge on Harry Chapman on Saturday.

A Pompey statement read: ‘Portsmouth Football Club can confirm that the appeal against John Marquis’ red card at Shrewsbury on Saturday was unsuccessful.

‘The decision by The FA’s Regulatory Commission means that the defender will now miss Pompey’s next three games against Rochdale, Wigan and Burton.’
