Jones red card decision is upheld

Crewe Alexandra have failed in their bid to get the red card shown to Billy Jones in Friday's 2-0 defeat at Tranmere Rovers rescinded.

The FA disciplinary commission ruled in a hearing on Tuesday that Jones intentionally impeded Rovers' Bas Savage at Prenton Park.

The 25-year-old will now serve a one-match ban, causing him to miss Tuesday's game with Peterborough.

It is the first red card of the former Exeter full-back's career.
