📝 Tom Parkes' red card rescinded

Defender available for Saturday''s FA Cup

7 November 2019

Tom Parkes red card against Bradford City on Saturday, November 2 has been rescinded after a successful appeal.

The defender was shown a straight red in the 82nd minute for allegedly bringing down Bradford's Dylan Connolly, however footage showed that the decision was harsh.

Speaking about the successful appeal, manager Matt Taylor said: "It has been rescinded and rightly so, we didn't feel it was a red card. The panel has made the right decision.

"The fact that it came back so soon in terms of our favour shows that it was probably the wrong decision on the day. We can't change that and the bonus from our point of view is that Tom is available."

Tom will be available for selection for Saturday's Emirates FA Cup clash against Cambridge United.
