Norwich defender Gary Doherty has had his red card during Saturday's defeat by Bristol City overturned by the FA.
The Canaries appealed against the decision of Premier League referee Andy D'Urso after Doherty was dismissed just before half-time for a challenge on City striker Dele Adebola.
Bradley Orr scored from the subsequent penalty and Norwich went on to lose the game 2-1, but after viewing video evidence the FA has rescinded the red card so Doherty will not serve a two-match suspension.
"This shows the appeal system works," Canaries boss Bryan Gunn told the club's official website.
"It won't bring us points but we will have an influential figure available for our next game and we are delighted about that."
