Brazilian goalkeeper will miss the FA Cup semi-final with Everton on Saturday after appeal against red card he picked up in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Blackburn is rejected

Liverpool goalkeeper Alexander Doni will miss the FA Cup semi-final with Everton after an appeal against his red card shown in the Reds' match with Blackburn Rovers was rejected.

The Brazilian was dismissed after felling Rovers striker Junior Hoilett in the box, with replacement Brad Jones coming on and saving the subsequent penalty.
Luis Suarez is 5/1 with bet365 to score the fisrt goal in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Everton.

A statement on the Football Association's website read: "Liverpool goalkeeper Alexander Doni will serve a one match suspension with immediate effect after his appeal for wrongful dismissal was rejected.

"Doni was sent off during his side’s match at Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday 10 April for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity.

"A Regulatory Commission heard the claim today [Thursday 12 April] and the suspension remains."

The Reds had attempted to loan a new goalkeeper on emergency terms, but when that was rejected, recalled Peter Gulacsi from a loan spell at Hull City to provide cover for Jones on Saturday.
