Cambridge United fail with appeal against the red card Lyle Taylor received against Bolton Wanderers





Cambridge United striker Lyle Taylor will serve a three-match suspension after the appeal against his red card was rejected.

The 33-year-old was handed his marching orders in the closing stages of Tuesday evening’s 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers following an off-the-ball incident with former U’s defender Jack Iredale.

Interim boss Barry Corr revealed yesterday that the club had opted to challenge the decision, although he did not hold out much hope of it being overturned.

And his pessimism has proven to be correct after the Football Association upheld the referee’s decision on the night.

As a result, Taylor will sit out tomorrow lunchtime’s derby against Peterborough United at the Cledara Abbey Stadium, as well as Tuesday evening’s trip to Stevenage and the quick reverse meeting at Bolton on March 2.

Taylor’s absence is likely to mean that Macauley Bonne will once again lead the United attack at the weekend, having made his first start for the club against Bolton.
