Stoke midfielder Steven Nzonzi has successfully appealed against a red card issued to him in Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Southampton.

Nzonzi was dismissed by referee Mark Clattenburg in the 3-3 draw at the Britannia Stadium for what appeared to be a stamp on Jack Cork.

At the time the decision angered Stoke manager Tony Pulis who felt Cork had over-reacted. Pulis said: "Whether the reaction of Cork, who is a good player and a good lad, has influenced Mark, I'm not sure, but Steven certainly doesn't stamp on the player."
