Stoke successful with Nzonzi red card appeal
Stoke's appeal against Steven Nzonzi's sending-off against Southampton last weekend has been upheld by the FA. The Potters midfielder was shown a straight red card for an alleged stamp on Jack Cork during the 3-3 draw at the Britannia Stadium.
"Nzonzi was dismissed for serious foul play during his side's game against Southampton on 29 December 2012.
"The midfielder's three-match suspension has therefore been withdrawn with immediate effect."
