Che Adams: was sent off against Huddersfield over the weekend

Birmingham striker Che Adams’ red card against Huddersfield has been rescinded by the FA after a successful appeal was lodged by the Blues.

The 20-year-old was dismissed by referee Mike Jones in the 22nd minute for a challenge on Huddersfield defender Martin Cranie.

Blues manager Harry Redknapp described the decision as “harsh” and the club launched an appeal to the FA.

An independent regulatory commission upheld their claim for wrongful dismissal and the FA has confirmed that Adams’ suspension has been withdrawn.

It means that Adams will now be available for Birmingham’s crucial final game of the season at Bristol City as the Blues look to avoid relegation to League One.

Despite the sending-off, Birmingham beat Huddersfield 2-0 and know a win next weekend will secure their Championship survival.
