Nzonzi wins red card appeal

Stoke midfielder Steven Nzonzi has won his appeal against the red card he received against Southampton.

Nzonzi, 24, was given his marching orders by referee Mark Clattenburg for an alleged stamp on Saints midfielder Jack Cork, in Stoke`s 3-3 draw at the Britannia Stadium on the 29th December.

Stoke manager Tony Pulis told BBC Sport: '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. There was no intent. He's actually planted his leg between his legs, which was quite clever.'

The Potters appealed the sending off immediately, claiming wrongful dismissal.

The appeal was upheld by the independent regulatory commission and the three match suspension which Nzonzi was about to serve has been withdrawn.

The Frenchman is now available for Stoke`s F.A. Cup fixture against Crystal Palace at the weekend (6th January).
