Pablo Ibanez wins red card appeal
Wednesday 03 November 2010
West Brom 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Ibanez's one-match ban has been withdrawn with immediate effect and he will be available for Sunday's game against Manchester City.
The Spaniard was dismissed by referee Michael Oliver in the 11th minute at Bloomfield Road after he was adjudged to have brought down Blackpool striker DJ Campbell inside the area.
The official deemed Ibanez to have denied Campbell an obvious goalscoring opportunity, a verdict the Baggies disputed after viewing the incident from various television angles.
West Brom finished the game with nine men after Gonzalo Jara was also dismissed for a lunge on Luke Varney shortly before the half-hour mark.
