Motherwell goalkeeper Darren Randolph has had his two-game ban upheld by the Scottish Foofball Association's judicial panel.
SFA compliance officer Vincent Lunny had issued a complaint after Randolph appeared to kick out at Hearts' Callum Paterson.
Motherwell appealed the suspension, but they have failed to have the ban overturned with the judicial panel feeling the incident constituted violent conduct.
It means Randolph will miss this weekend's Scottish Cup game against Aberdeen as well as the SPL encounter with Ross County.
Lee Hollis is set to replace Randolph in Stuart McCall's side for those two games.
