Bolton defender Gary Cahill wins red card appeal

Share This Story



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

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

Bolton was already down 1-0 when it was 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 offense did not constitute denial of a scoring opportunity because it was out wide and near halfway.

The FA says ''the one-match suspension handed to him has been withdrawn.''
