Morecambe Football Club can confirm that the appeal against Sam Lavelle’s red card on Saturday afternoon was unsuccessful.
The decision by The FA’s Regulatory Commission means that the defender will now miss the Shrimps' Sky Bet League Two fixture versus Harrogate Town.
"If I'm honest, I've looked back at it several times over the weekend and I was pretty confident it would be overturned," said Lavelle.
"At the time I thought he was in an offside position, I feel as though he was also fairly wide for it to be a sending off.
"Unfortunately that's not the case and I'll have to miss the next game now, which I'm gutted about."
