MIDFIELDER Maddy Prespakis has been unsuccessful in her bid to challenge to have her one-match suspension overturned.

The Tribunal upheld the original decision passed down by the Match Review Officer, meaning that Prespakis will miss Carlton's Round 5 game against North Melbourne. 

General Manager of Women’s Football, Brett Munro said, “While we are obviously disappointed with the outcome for both our club and Maddy included, we will now move on and focus on this Saturday’s game. Our sole attention is continuing our preparation for this week, before travelling down to Launceston and performing well against a quality opposition.”
