John Terry will serve a one-match ban after Chelsea's appeal against his sending off in the FA Cup tie against Peterborough was rejected.

Defender Terry, making since November, was adjudged to be last man when he fouled Lee Angol and was shown a straight red card by referee Kevin Friend in Sunday's game.

The Premier League club put in an appeal, which was unsuccessful, meaning the suspension stands, ruling Terry out of the match against champions Leicester on Saturday.

However, Chelsea's potential redevelopment of Stamford Bridge could move a sizeable step closer this evening as the planning application for a 60,000-seater stadium is presented to Hammersmith and Fulham Council, which they are expected to approve.

The Premier League leaders have decided developing their current home, rather than relocating elsewhere, is their preferred option as they look to provide a stadium with a capacity more akin to other top-flight clubs.
