The 23-year-old has already served a two-match suspension but will now sit out clashes against Fleetwood and Northampton

Gillingham star Bradley Dack has been ruled out for the remainder of the season in the club’s battle against relegation from League One.

Ady Pennock’s side are four points from safety with two games left to play, but the task has been made more difficult after Dack was slapped with an additional ban following a red card against MK Dons earlier this month.

The 23-year-old has already served a two-match suspension following the dismissal on April 1, but upon receipt of referee Carl Boyeson’s match report from that game, the sport’s governing body have handed Dack an increased ban that is effective immediately.

The club’s appeal against this was rejected.

It means he will miss Saturday’s clash with Fleetwood Town on Saturday as well as the final game of the season next Sunday when the Gills travel to Northampton Town.
