FA rescind red card of Swansea's Routledge

Wayne Routledge has had his red card overturned by the Football Association's Independent Regulatory Commission.

The Swansea City midfielder was sent off for violent conduct in the 86th minute of his side's 1-1 draw with QPR at Loftus Road on Thursday for an altercation with Karl Henry.

Swansea opted to appeal the decision on Friday and their claim for wrongful dismissal has been upheld meaning Routledge's three-game ban has been withdrawn.

Routledge is now free to play in the FA Cup third round at Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.
