The Football Association have rejected Hull City's appeal against the red card shown to midfielder Tom Huddlestone against Everton.
Huddlestone was dismissed by referee Paul Tierney for a late tackle on Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye, and will serve a three-match ban.
The 30-year-old will now miss the Tigers' games against West Ham, Middlesbrough and Manchester City.
Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone has completed a long-awaited haircut after scoring against Fulham last Saturday.
The 27-year-old had grown an impressive afro since pledging not to cut it until ending his drought, which stretches back to April 2011.
Nottingham-born Huddlestone has raised over £36,000 for Cancer Research UK on his 'Huddlefro' JustGiving page.
