Brown's Red Card Overturned

Posted: Wed 18 Dec 2013

The FA Regulatory Commission has overturned the decision to send off Matty Brown in Saturday's game against Plymouth after ruling that it was a case of wrongful dismissal.

Brown, who was making his debut for the Spireites, was shown the red card following a challenge on Caolan Lavery which resulted in a penalty.

After studying video evidence submitted by the club, the automatic suspension has been withdrawn by the Regulatory Commission.

Brown is now eligible for Friday night's game at Exeter City.
