The Magpies lodged an appeal against Remy's red card, but the FA has dismissed the claim. The France international will now begin a three-match suspension, meaning he will miss Saturday's Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland.

Newcastle United have signed France international striker Loic Remy on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers.
The 26-year-old almost joined the Magpies from Marseille in January, but instead opted to move to London. However, Remy has now completed a loan switch to Tyneside as QPR were relegated to the Championship.
Remy, who scored six goals in 14 appearances for QPR last season, said:
"It will be a huge honour to play for such a big club. I was very flattered by the club's interest in me back in January and also very happy that they showed interest in me again this summer.
"The Premier League is the best league in the world and that's where I want to play.
"I am very motivated this year to get into the World Cup squad for my country. I know in order to do that I need to have a big season and a successful campaign with Newcastle United.
"I am focussed on helping the team achieve success this season and scoring as many goals as I can."
