Brighton & Hove Albion's appeal against Jamie Murphy's red card in the match against Bolton Wanderers last weekend has been rejected by the Football Association's regulatory commission.
The Seagulls submitted a claim for wrongful dismissal, but an independent panel which will have included a former player, manager and referee, rejected the appeal.
