Naughton's appeal rejected

Tottenham's Kyle Naughton has lost his appeal against his red card against Stoke, the Football Association has announced.

The full-back will serve an immediate two-match ban after the appeal was dismissed by an independent regulatory commission hearing on Tuesday.

Naughton tripped Victor Moses as the Stoke forward raced through on goal during Tottenham's 2-1 Barclays Premier League loss on Sunday. He was sent off for denying a goal-scoring opportunity.

It was Naughton's second dismissal of the season and he will miss the trip to Hull on November 23 and the home meeting with Everton on November 30.
