Liverpool rule out Spearing appeal

Liverpool FC have decided not to appeal against Jay Spearing’s red card which will see him miss the home game against QPR, and the two away games at Aston Villa and Wigan in the next fortnight.

The reds, who lost Lucas Leiva for the season through injury, recently recalled Jonjo Shelvey from his loan spell who could get a chance in the side in the coming games.

Whilst the club felt they had a case to put forward, with important games against Newcastle and Man City a little further ahead – the club did not want to risk a delay and the potential of an extra game being added to the ban.
