Charlton striker Kevin Lisbie has failed to have a ban overturned.Charlton striker Kevin Lisbie has failed to overturn the red card he picked up while playing for the reserves.
The 26-year-old was sent off for violent conduct for the reserves last week in his comeback match after a hamstring problem.
Lisbie will be forced to serve a three-match suspension and is now set to miss the FA Cup clash with Leicester as well as the Premiership games with Middlesbrough and Fulham.
Addicks boss Alan Curbishley believes the sending off was harsh on Lisbie.
"He received a terrible tackle from behind," said Curbishley.
"He grabbed the guy who did it, but didn't deserve to be sent off."
