Boost for West Ham as Cole red card overturned

West Ham striker Carlton Cole has had his red card against Everton rescinded. Hammers boss Sam Allardyce told the club website: "I am delighted that we have probably got a bit of justice as it deserved to be turned around.

"There was never any doubt in my mind. While you can say the foot was high, it was a genuine attempt and Carlton kept his eye on the ball. It's a really good outcome for us.

"The way he is playing at the moment, he would have been a massive loss for us. He's been outstanding up front for us since Andy Carroll got injured and we didn't want to miss a player of so much importance for these three very important games - Reading away, Norwich City at home and a big FA Cup third-round tie with Manchester United."
