The Imps on loan American defender has been handed a three match ban following his tackle on Saturday, a ban which could mean he doesn't appear for City again.
The youngster, who is on a month's loan from Aston Villa, was shown a straight red card for kicking Laurence Wilson.
Lichaj will now miss the FA Cup tie at AFC Telford United and the League Two games against Cheltenham and Grimsby. However should City draw with Telford. it would mean he'd be available for the Mariners clash.
Lichaj was playing only his second game for the Imps after arriving on loan at Sincil Bank on 22 October, a one month loan that is set to expire on November 22nd - the day after the Grimsby clash.
