Stoke have Delap red card overturned on appeal

Stoke defender Rory Delap has had the red card he received in Sunday's FA Cup win over Crawley withdrawn. Delap was dismissed in the first half for a sliding challenge on Crawley's David Hunt, though his team-mates were still able to record a 2-0 win over the npower League Two side.

An FA statement read: "Stoke City's Rory Delap has had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld.

"As a result, the three-match suspension handed to him has been withdrawn with immediate effect."
