Ipswich fail to win Bruce appeal

Alex Bruce is shown red card
Bruce was dismissed shortly after Ipswich had scored their third goal

Ipswich Town have failed in their bid to overturn the red card shown to Alex Bruce during Wednesday's 3-1 win over Bristol City.

The defender was dismissed following a tackle on City striker Nicky Maynard.

Bruce protested his innocence and Ipswich supported their appeal with video evidence but an FA disciplinary panel upheld the original decision.

A second red card of the season means the Republic of Ireland international will miss the next four games.
