Norwich City goalkeeper Mark Bunn has had his appeal for the red card received against Sunderland on Sunday rejected, and will now serve a one-match ban.
The second-choice shot-stopper was given his marching orders after rushing out to charge down a header from team-mate Michael Turner outside the box, with the defender under heavy pressure from the Black Cats’ striker Danny Graham.

Norwich appealed on the grounds that Bunn had not deliberately handled the ball – with replays hinting at an inadvertent deflection towards the goalkeeper - but the independent regulatory commission rejected that view and the 28-year-old will remain suspended for the upcoming game with Wigan.
