Sunderland defender Wes Brown’s red card from the defeat against Stoke City on Saturday has been rescinded by the Football Association, the club confirmed on tuesday.
After Wes Brown got sent off for what looked like good tackle on Charlie Adam, Sunderland went on to lose the game by 2 goals to nil, leaving the Black Cats manager Gus Poyet furious at the red card decision.
Poyet told the club’s website after their claim of wrongful dismissal was upheld, “I would like to express my thanks to the panel for giving the matter their consideration. Naturally we are delighted with their decision, which is fair and just,”
Gus Poyet said: “Of course it was hugely frustrating to have Wes sent off, but we accept that officials are only human and like everyone, they can make mistakes.”
The former Manchester United defender Wes Brown’s three-match ban has been dropped so he will be available for the game against Aston Villa on Saturday.
On the other hand, Yannick Bolasie of Crystal Palace had his appeal to overturn his red card against Hull City denied. He will serve his three match ban.
