Otis Khan will be banned for Yeovil Town's next five matches after he was sent off for violent conduct during the game against Chesterfield on Saturday [20/01/18].

Yeovil appealed the red card, however, they failed to convince an Independent Regulatory Commission that the referee made an obvious error in sending the player off.

Furthermore, the Independent Regulatory Commission increased the player’s standard suspension of three matches by an additional two matches as it considered the appeal had no prospect of success.

The decision cannot be appealed.
