Chelsea's John Terry will serve a one-match ban after his appeal against the red card he was shown at the weekend was rejected.

The veteran defender received a red card by referee Kevin Friend for a late challenge during the FA Cup clash with Peterborough on Saturday.

The Blues boss Antonio Conte dismissed it as harsh after the game and announced almost immediately that the club would appeal to have it revoked.

Despite the booking, Chelsea went on to win the match 4-1 and advanced to the fourth round of the competition.
