Walsall's Sam Mantom will now serve a three-match ban

The midfielder was sent off against Preston on Saturday for a high challenge on Joe Garner but the Saddlers appealed the decision earlier this week.

That proved unsuccessful, meaning Mantom's three-match ban will start with Wednesday evening's rearranged clash with Coventry at Sixfields.
