German side Hoffenheim confirm that they will not appeal against the decision not to replay the game against Bayer Leverkusen.
Hoffenheim have confirmed that they will not appeal against the German Football Association's decision not to replay their game against Bayer Leverkusen on October 18.
Stefan Kiessling was awarded a goal for the visitors but his header had actually gone wide and ended up in the net through a hole, with his side eventually winning 2-1.
"After extensive deliberations we have finally decided to give up the route of taking this to the next level," the club's chairman Peter Rettig told their official website.
"This decision does not change the fact that we view the tribunal's decision as sending a wrong signal to football in general.
"However, we will accept this judgment because we do not want to get bogged down in what is obviously a hopeless cause."
Hoffenheim sit ninth while Leverkusen are third in the Bundesliga.
