Norwich City goalkeeper Bunn sees red card appeal rejected

The 28-year-old shot-stopper will now sit out the Canaries' clash with relegation rivals Wigan, with third-choice keeper Lee Camp set to deputise, after his ban was upheld

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.

9/1 Norwich City are 9/1 with Paddy Power to draw 0-0 with Wigan on March 30
Referee Chris Foy deemed Bunn to have handled the ball, with Lee Camp making his Premier League debut as his replacement.

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.
