Preston North End midfielder Neil Kilkenny has had his red card from Tuesday night’s draw over Bradford City overturned.
At a FA panel hearing on Thursday afternoon, the three match ban for violent conduct handed out to Kilkenny was rescinded with immediate effect.
The Lilywhites’ No.37 will now be free to face Notts County on Saturday.
Preston submitted an appeal to the FA on Wednesday, which contained video evidence and a written submission to the effect that Kilkenny did not raise his hand to the head/neck area of Kyle Bennett who was also shown a straight red card.
And after a panel meeting in London, the FA have upheld North End’s appeal.
