Swansea City have confirmed they will not appeal the red card shown to Jordan Ayew during the goalless draw with Huddersfield Town.

Carlos Carvalhal called the decision to dismiss Ayew ‘harsh’ following the draw, claiming he would seek expert advice on whether to appeal the decision.

However, the club have today confirmed that they will not appeal the decision after considering that Ayew could in fact face a further suspension if the FA deem the appeal as ‘frivolous’.

Ayew’s challenge on Huddersfield’s Jonathan Hogg left both players in a heap on the floor but the Ghanaian received his marching orders.

The forward will now miss the Swans’ next three games, which include the FA Cup clash with Tottenham Hotspur as well as Premier League ties with Manchester United and West Brom.
