Stoke defender Andy Griffin has had his sending off during Sunday´s 3-0 defeat by QPR rescinded by the Football Association.

Referee Andy D´Urso showed Griffin a straight red card for a lunge on Hogan Ephraim during the first half at Loftus Road, but television replays showed he took the ball cleanly and made no contact with the Rangers winger.

D´Urso agreed to look again at the video evidence and the FA have now upheld City´s appeal against the decision.
