Millwall attacker Tim Cahill was charged by the Football Association for an incident of violent conduct in the Championship game against Fulham last Friday.

An 85th-minute clash with Ryan Fredericks was missed by the referee and following the charge by the disciplinary panel, 38-year-old Cahill was handed a three-game ban yesterday evening having accepted the complaint.

Having rejoined Millwall and returned to The Den at the end of the January transfer window as a free agent following his spell with Melbourne City, Cahill has now made ten substitute appearances in his second spell with us.

Whilst he’d have no doubt hoped for a few starts, there is time left in the season if we reach the Play-Offs for that to happen, but he has been building his fitness and getting game time as he looks to his final World Cup with the Socceroos this summer and that was ultimately his main aim.

Fans are pretty clear on the impact he’s had on the side both on and off the pitch so it’s been beneficial to all.

In relation to his ban, fans were more concerned with the apparent unfairness given Aleksandar Mitrovic’s behaviour doesn’t appear to have been punished in line with Cahill’s misdemeanour.
