(Reuters) - Watford defender Marvin Zeegelaar will serve a three-game ban after the Premier League club were unsuccessful in their appeal against his sending-off during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Burnley.

Dutchman Zeegelaar, 27, was shown a straight red card for a two-footed tackle on Burnley's Steven Defour and will miss Tuesday's league match against Crystal Palace and games against Huddersfield Town and Brighton and Hove Albion.

Watford, ninth in the table, are without a win in their last three matches.
