ALAN Dunne will be suspended for Millwall's trip to Nottingham Forest on Saturday after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Huddersfield Town.

Dunne, who making his 300th appearance for the club, was booked for a tackle on striker Jermaine Beckford in the 54th minute of the Lions' 4-0 win over the Terriers and will serve a one-match ban.

The right-back becomes the second Millwall player this season to trigger a suspension after reaching five yellows, following in the footsteps of Shane Lowry – who is the Championship's most-booked player with six.

Manager Kenny Jackett will be hoping that Jack Smith, who has been struggling with a muscle strain, will be fit to replace Dunne at The City Ground.
