Blues have announced today that they won’t be launching an appeal following the straight sending off of Cameron Jerome last weekend.

Rumours had circulated that the club would put in an appeal, at the very least to reduce the automatic 3 match ban the player now faces.

However, the official site today dismissed that idea.

Steve Bruce initially thought the player had been hard done by, but after reviewing video evidence the club have decided not to lodge an appeal.

This means that Jerome will miss the games against Sunderland, Stoke and Palace.
