Chelsea captain John Terry will be asked to wear an anti-racism armband if he leads the team against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League tomorrow. Terry is currently serving a domestic ban for shouting a racial insult at an opponent but he is eligible to play in tomorrow's game in Ukraine.

The European governing body UEFA is using this week's European matches to promote the 'United Against Racism' campaign after a series of racist incidents at matches. All club captains will be asked to wear the armbands during the games.

Kick it out critical of Chelsea stance

Chelsea have been criticised by football's equality group Kick It Out for keeping their punishment of John Terry secret.

The club said they had taken "further disciplinary action" against the defender after Terry decided to accept a four-match ban and £220,000 fine from the FA for racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

But Chelsea said they would be keeping their action "confidential" due to club policy.

Lord Herman Ouseley, chairman of Kick It Out, said that stance could damage Chelsea in the eyes of those people who had been waiting many months to see how the club handled the case.
