United duo out of Watford clash

United duo out of Watford clash

Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes will miss out on United`s trip to Vicarage Road on August 26 after the FA dismissed their red card appeals.

The duo were sent off during The Red Devils friendly match against FC Porto in the Amsterdam tournament earlier this month but were hopeful that the FA would rescind the red cards that were handed out by referee Ruud Bossen.

An FA statement read: "The bans will start from Wednesday 23 August, 14 days on from the day the FA received the match officials' report from the Dutch FA. Rooney and Scholes were sent off for violent conduct and serious foul play respectively."

The Old Trafford outfit have so far refused to comment on the on the three-match ban but it is unlikely to go down well with Sir Alex Ferguson, who said earlier this week: "I am surprised it has carried on this far."

The ban does not start until August 23 allowing Rooney and Scholes to play in United`s opening Premiership game against Fulham at old Trafford. But the pair will also miss matches against Tottenham and Charlton.

Meanwhile, West Ham United striker Dean Ashton will miss The Hammers trip to Hertfordshire next Tuesday after breaking his ankle while training with the England squad.

Dean Ashton is going to miss a bit more than a trip to Herfordshire but good luck Watford may no Rooney and Scholes benefit both of us during their suspension.
