ACCRINGTON Stanley defender Farrend Rawson has seen the red card issued to him in Saturday's 2-0 League Two defeat at Lincoln City overturned.

The Reds appealed the decision by referee Seb Stockbridge to send off the defender for pulling Matt Green back inside the box.

Green converted the resultant penalty to give the Imps the lead on the stroke of half time and the home side added a second in the second half to seal the points.

But the FA Regulatory Commission cleared Rawson and the 21-year-old will now be available for Saturday’s home match with Crawley Town.
