Charlton have decided not to appeal Naby Sarr’s red card in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Wimbledon.
The French defender was sent off inside the opening minute against the Dons. And he will now serve a three-match suspension.
“Chris Parkes [club secretary] seems to think that we wouldn’t be able to overturn it,” said Addicks manager Lee Bowyer.
“He has got more experience than me on this over the years.
“I thought it was harsh, I have seen it back now. There is nothing malicious in it, it’s just slightly mistimed. You’re talking about a split second. You could even argue he won the ball first.
“He’s such a big fella that his momentum took him through the fella.”
