Norwich City midfielder Bradley Johnson has had his red card from Tuesday night rescinded.

Johnson was sent off in the 82nd minute of the Canaries' 0-0 draw with Newcastle United at Carrow Road after he was involved in an incident with Magpies striker Loic Remy.

Johnson was facing a three-match ban for the straight red, which came for a push and shove match with Remy, but he has been cleared after a wrongful dismissal appeal.

However, Frenchman Remy's sanction will stand meaning he will miss this weekend's Tyne-Wear derby with Sunderland.

"An Independent Regulatory Commission heard two claims of wrongful dismissal today both in relation to the Norwich City versus Newcastle United game on Tuesday," read a FA statement.

"The claim involving Norwich's Bradley Johnson was upheld meaning his three-match suspension is withdrawn.

"The claim involving Newcastle's Loic Remy was dismissed therefore his three-match suspension remains with immediate effect.

"Both players had been dismissed for violent conduct."
