Dundee derby duo win appeals

Dundee derby duo win appeals

Dundee United striker Russell and Dundee midfielder O'Donnell had their red cards reduced to yellow for unsporting behaviour (recklessly dangerous play).

Calum Murray sent off both in the second half of United's 3-0 Tannadice win after Russell reacted on the ground following a tackle by O'Donnell.

Scotland Under-21 international Russell is now free to face Kilmarnock in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League on Saturday, while O'Donnell can play against Ross County.
