Chuks Aneke's red card against Blackpool overturned

The red card produced to Chuks Aneke during Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Blackpool at The Valley has been overturned following a successful appeal by the club.

The striker was dismissed by referee Brett Hextable in the 85th minute of the match for 'violent conduct' following an aerial duel with Blackpool's Daniel Ballard. The red card would have resulted in a four-match ban for Aneke due to the incident being his second dismissal of the campaign.

With replays showing the decision to be incorrect, the club lodged an appeal to have the decision overturned. Following a review by the Football Association's independent Regulatory Commission, the claim for wrongful dismissal was successful and the red card has now been rescinded, making Aneke available for the trip to Wigan Athletic on Tuesday evening.
