Ibanez succeeds in red card appeal

West Bromwich defender Pablo Ibanez has won his appeal against the red card he picked up in Monday's Premier League defeat to Blackpool.

The Football Association confirmed that Ibanez's claim for wrongful dismissal had been upheld by an independent regulatory commission.

Ibanez's one-match ban has been withdrawn and he will be available for Albion's home game with Manchester City on Sunday.
