Wolves have lost their bid to have Jamie O'Hara's three-game ban reduced after their appeal was rejected by the Football Association.

O'Hara, who was sent off during Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Huddersfield, will miss Tuesday night's game against Hull City followed by the clashes with Charlton and Burnley.

The midfielder reacted angrily to a challenge from Terriers substitute Keith Southern and subsequently pushed him, leading to his dismissal.

Wolves had accepted the decision itself but were unhappy with the mandatory three-match ban and asked the FA for leniency in the matter.

Under FA rules a club may appeal the severity of a suspension if they feel there are extenuating circumstances, but in this instance the FA decided to reject the appeal and O'Hara will have to serve the full three-game ban.
