Wigan midfielder Jordi Gomez has won his appeal against a three-match suspension imposed for his sending off during his side's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland over the weekend.

Gomez was shown a straight red card for serious foul play just two minutes into the second half on Saturday after a lunge at defender Danny Rose.

The Spaniard was set to miss the Latics' three fixtures this month as a result but a regulatory commission upheld Gomez's claim for wrongful dismissal, the Football Association confirmed.
