Kelvin Wilson is hoping to be let off the hook when he appears at Hampden on Thursday to answer the charge of violent conduct following Celtic's game against Dundee at Dens Park last week.
The Hoops defender, 27, was issued with a notice of complaint by the Scottish Football Association's compliance officer, Vincent Lunny, for allegedly using an elbow on John Baird, who afterwards said: "It was an elbow, but I have to stress I think it was accidental."
The former Nottingham Forest player rejected the offer of a two-game ban and hopes Baird's testimony will be taken into consideration when he makes a personal appearance in front of the disciplinary panel at the national stadium.
