Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill has won his appeal against the red card he received in Saturday's Premier League defeat at Tottenham.

Cahill was sent off by referee Stuart Atwell for bringing down England team-mate Scott Parker in the 18th minute.

Bolton were already down 1-0 when they were reduced to 10 men and lost 3-0.

Cahill appealed to the Football Association against the decision and subsequent suspension on the grounds that the offence did not constitute denial of a scoring opportunity because it was out wide and near halfway.

An FA spokesman said: "The one-match suspension handed to him has been withdrawn."
