MAHLON Romeo will miss Millwall’s play-off campaign after the Football Association rejected the club’s appeal against his sending-off against Gillingham last Sunday.

Romeo was given a red card by referee Paul Tierney in the 86th minute after a tackle on Brennan Dickenson and the club lodged an appeal on Monday hoping it would be overturned.

But the appeals panel confirmed on Tuesday that the red card will stand and Romeo will miss the League One play-off semi-final clash with Bradford, and the final at Wembley on May 29 should Millwall reach it.
