Watford will not be appealing Joel Ekstrand's controversial red card against Norwich City or the subsequent three-match ban.

Ekstrand was sent off two minutes into the Championship contest after an off-the-ball clash with Nathan Redmond, which resulted in the Norwich winger suffering a bloody nose.

The Hornets centre back was handed a three-match suspension for violent conduct due to the use of an elbow.

Ekstrand will miss tomorrow's game with Rotherham United, Saturday's match with Leeds United and the Capital One Cup tie with Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday, August 26.
