Peternborough United’s summer signing Ricky Miller has been handed a six-match ban for a biting offence.
The ban is believed to relate to an incident in a National League match at Guiseley in March when Miller was playing for Dover.
Miller wasn’t cautioned in the game. He scored twice in a 4-0 win, but Guiseley are thought to have demanded retrospective justice.
Miller was sent off once and cautioned 13 times for Dover last season.
Posh knew there was a chance of a lengthy ban when they signed Miller in May.
Miller will now miss the entire August programme including the opening day fixture against Plymouth (August 5), possibly two Carabao Cup ties and the local derby at Northampton (August 26).
