Loic Remy's appeal against his red card at Norwich has been rejected - but the Canaries' Bradley Johnson's dismissal has been overturned
An Independent Regulatory Commission heard two claims of wrongful dismissal on Friday, both in relation to the Norwich City versus Newcastle United game on Tuesday.
The claim involving Norwich's Bradley Johnson was upheld, meaning his three-match suspension is withdrawn.
The claim involving Newcastle's Loic Remy was dismissed and therefore his three-match suspension remains with immediate effect.
Both players had been dismissed for violent conduct.
