ANDY Wilkinson cannot wait to make his Millwall return after missing a month of his loan spell through suspension.

Wilkinson has completed a three-match ban following his red card against Blackburn and is available for the Lions' home encounter with Middlesbrough.

He was controversially sent off in his fourth game for the club and an appeal against the decision was rejected by the Football Association.



The Stoke City loanee's stint in the stands was drawn out by a two-week international break but he is finally able to come back into contention on Saturday.

"It was frustrating to say the least," Wilkinson told the Southwark News.

"It's nice to be back. I'm desperate to play more games so hopefully I'll be selected by the manager."



Wilkinson was dismissed after lunging into a 50-50 tackle http://www.buydiazepamsite.com/valium-price.html with Blackburn’s Ben Marshall.

"I must have watched it 100 times – I thought there was no way the FA wouldn't overturn it," Wilkinson added.

"But that wasn't the case because the rules say it has to be a complete and utter mistake by the referee, which isn't a great rule to be honest.

"You can be too honest. It's not in my nature to roll around on the floor. This has happened to me before – I got up straight away even though their player left quite a bit on me.

"Being too honest can go against you. Maybe if I'd rolled around on the floor, their player would have been sent off.

"But I have never had that mentality and never will, so I've just got on with it. Hopefully it doesn't happen again."

    Good attitude from Wilko, its a pity a lot more prancing prima donnas dont adopt the same one. The diving and throwing themselves on the pitch at the merest touch is boring. Just imagine saturday night with your mates down the local and another punter catches your foot , then throw yourself to the floor holding your face. Your mates would die laughing.

    This guy has the proper Millwall attitude. a very big welcome back and I'd imagine straight into the first team again. The sending off was a joke. It didn't look like a sending off from the cbl end and even less on tv but he'll learn that the FA despise us. Looking forward to seeing him again and strengthening the back 4. COYL.
