TOWN have decided not to appeal against Lee Fowler's red card from the Swindon match.
The Welsh Under 21 midfield man, making only his fifth club start of the season, was sent-off for a two-footed tackle on Swindon substitute Grant Smith.
Referee Andy Woolmer and Town manager Peter Jackson spoke about the dismissal incident immediately after the County Ground clash, and agreed to study the video evidence.
Jackson revealed today he felt there was no point taking the matter to appeal and expects Fowler to be out for three matches, starting tomorrow against Oldham at Boundary Park.
"I've watched it time and time again and it's a two-footed lunge by Lee in which both his feet left the ground," said Jackson.
"When you consider the experiences we've had when appealing against red cards for Jon Worthington at Accrington and Efe Sodje at Bury last season, it's certainly not worth taking Lee's case any further.
"He definitely gets the ball and I've seen worse challenges, but you can't go jumping in like that.
"I've a great deal of sympathy for Lee because he was having a decent game and, having got the start, he was determined to impress, but he'll now be out for three games."
Fowler will be available again at Bournemouth on December 28.
