SH­EFFIELD Wed­nes­day have been frus­trated in their at­tempts to over­turn a three­game ban handed out to mid­fielder Barry Ban­nan.

The Scot­land in­ter­na­tional, 26, was sent off for a chal­lenge on Eric Lichaj in last Satur­day’s 3-0 vic­tory over Not­ting­ham For­est.

Ban­nan, a rev­e­la­tion since ar­riv­ing on a free trans­fer from Crys­tal Palace last Au­gust, sat out yes­ter­day’s visit from Charl­ton Ath­letic and will miss next month’s meet­ings with Hud­der­s­field Town and Black­burn Rovers.

A state­ment on the FA web­site read: “A claim of wrong­ful dis­missal has been re­jected fol­low­ing an In­de­pen­dent Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion hear­ing.”
