Dichio to miss FA Cup final
Curzon sends off Dichio and Morgan
Millwall striker Danny Dichio will miss next month's FA Cup final after referee Brian Curzon confirmed his red card against Nottingham Forest will stand.

Dichio, who has impressed since joining from West Brom in January, will not face Manchester United on 22 May.

Lions player-manager Dennis Wise told his club's official website: "The referee has already told us that he's not going to change his mind.

"So, unless we get into the play-offs, Danny's going to miss the Cup final."

The former QPR and Sunderland forward was dismissed after an off-the-ball clash with Forest defender Wes Morgan.

He will now sit out a three-match ban and Wise added: "He's distraught about it, as all the other lads are for him, but that's the way it goes sometimes."
