FA upholds Bunn suspension

ESPN staff

Norwich City goalkeeper Mark Bunn will serve a one-match ban for the red card he received in Sunday's draw at Sunderland after the FA rejected the Canaries' appeal.

Bunn was sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity by handling the ball outside of the penalty area during the 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.

Norwich had appealed the decision of referee Chris Foy to show the keeper a straight red, but an independent regulatory commission appointed by the FA upheld the original decision.

Bunn, whose outstreched arm touched the ball under pressure from Sunderland striker Danny Graham, will now miss the Premier League clash with Wigan after the international break.
