Accrington will be unable to appeal Luke Joyce's red card in the weekend win over Torquay due to lack of video evidence.

The 24-year-old midfielder was deemed to have struck Mark Ellis off the ball by referee Andrew Madley and, despite boss John Coleman's initial intention to contest the decision, Joyce will serve a three-game ban.

Stanley chief executive Rob Heys told the Lancashire Telegraph: "We can't appeal because we've looked at the video and it's just out of shot, there's nothing we can do. Luke's gutted."
