Delap wins appeal against red card

Published Add your comment

Stoke defender Rory Delap has won his appeal against the red card he received in Sunday's FA Cup win over Crawley.

Delap was dismissed in the first half for a sliding challenge on Crawley's David Hunt, though his team-mates were still able to record a 2-0 win over the npower League Two side.

Potters boss Tony Pulis was visibly frustrated by the dismissal and the club quickly decided to appeal, and the Football Association announced the red card had been rescinded on Tuesday afternoon.
