Burton's Turner banned for five games

Ben Turner

Burton Albion's Ben Turner has lost his appeal against a Football Association racial abuse charge and will miss the first five games of next season.

Turner was charged after an incident involving Brentford's Nico Yennaris in the Championship match in December.

An independent panel found the 29-year-old defender guilty as his language "included a reference to ethnic origin and/or race and/or nationality".
