SWINDON TOWN: Byrne appeal unsuccessful
SWINDON Town's appeal against the red card handed to Nathan Byrne in the weekend draw at MK Dons has been unsuccessful.
Referee Stuart Attwell dismissed the winger for a clumsy challenge on Shaun Williams in the 51st minute at stadium:mk, but neither Town boss Mark Cooper nor his opposite number Karl Robinson thought the punishment was justified.
Swindon submitted an appeal to the Football Association yesterday but it was turned down today, meaning Byrne will serve a three-match ban. He will not be available for the league games against Wolves and Bristol City and the Capital One Cup third-round tie against Chelsea.
