The Football Association will reconsider its decision to uphold a three-match ban for West Ham striker Andy Carroll on Friday, reports BBC Sport. The club had threatened legal action against the FA after their initial attempt to overturn the ban was rejected by an appeals panel.
But the Premier League strugglers say they will now abide by any decision made at the arbitration hearing.
Carroll was sent off in his side's 2-0 defeat of Swansea last Saturday.
In a statement, West Ham said they had "no intention of taking the issue to the courts, but simply seek a fair determination of [our] rights under the FA's rules".
