Norwich City midfielder Bradley Johnson is available for the Premier League trip to Cardiff City after successfully appealing his three-match ban for his midweek sending-off against Newcastle.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Johnson was dismissed in the 82nd minute along with the Magpies’ French international striker Loic Remy after the pair squared up in a heated exchange. Remy’s appeal has failed and the striker will serve a three-match ban for violent conduct.

“It’s very good news for us,” said City boss Chris Hughton. “Our feeling at the time was that it was a very harsh decision so credit to those who had to make the decision to uphold our appeal.”

An FA statement released on Thursday afternoon read: “An Independent Regulatory Commission heard two claims of wrongful dismissal today both in relation to the Norwich City versus Newcastle United game on Tuesday (28 January 2014). The claim involving Norwich’s Bradley Johnson was upheld meaning his three-match suspension is withdrawn. The claim involving Newcastle’s Loic Remy was dismissed therefore his three-match suspension remains with immediate effect. Both players had been dismissed for violent conduct.”

  • I`m very surprised it was rescinded but, of course, pleased with that result. Why so combative, baguio? No need.

  • Of people see things differently, but the commission ruled he did not deserve a straight red - as a number of us said yesterday. The shame is referees (and assistants) nowadays make to my mind too many critical decisions whereby they cannot be absolutely certain. For example, with Johnson love to know what it is they say they actually saw. Roll on the day when technology arrives. Would love to see the decision review system introduced as in cricket or even let the referee ask for a review as in rugby. Soccer is so far behind the times - and yet so many more millions are at stake at the top level. Rant over, my glass needs re-filling!

  • Couldn't agree more zebbee. What did the referee say that he had sent Johnson off for? He should have gone to Spec Savers. And Yes Michigan, the ref should be made to explain his decisions in front of a panel. I honestly think we would have won that game if Johnson had not been sent off.

  • Dear oh Dear Baguio, have you had a bad day mate? Even different ref´s see things in different ways, so why shouldn't people on here give their views on how they see it. Just my view, just agree to disagree and chill.

  • Well, tickle my t*ts til Friiday, who'd have thought? Sometimes, I long to be wrong. Hope I'm equally off the mark with my final league position prediction. As for Baguio, well said Brew and Spancan. Go away baguio, your sort are not welcome here. Is that too harsh? Tough, I've said it now.

  • Johnson's reprieve is not a big issue: the real one is the game at Cardiff on Saturday. Can we get our game together and score goals? I will be following it on t'internet out here then off to see Malaga play Sevilla....a 10pm KO!!!!

  • What happens to the referee in these situations? Sent back to refs school? How does he learn from a wrong decision, and is there any penalty? The impact of playing a man down is big, albeit in this case, late in the game.

  • Like I put as a comment on the story about us appealing two days ago, this was a no brainer. Obviously he shouldn't have been sent off. I note all those who thought otherwise! Some people on here have no idea of the rules of football and yet are so quick to get typing. If you don't know what you're talking about please put some mittens on people! It might stop you typing rubbish?

  • Absolutely stunned at Johnson shoved Remy, but also more than a little bit amused when I think of Alan Pardew's reaction to this!
