Aston Villa's Chris Herd will not be banned for three games after the club won his appeal against wrongful dismissal.
The versatile Australian was shown a red card by referee Phil Dowd in West Brom's 2-1 win at Villa Park on Saturday.
Villa were leading courtesy of Darren Bent's penalty and Herd's sending off proved crucial as the visitors turned things around against the 10 men.
Herd was sent off following a tangle with Jonas Olsson, but few in the ground knew why he was issued with a straight red.
Villa were far from happy with the 22-year-old's sending off and they have been vindicated in their appeal as their claim has now been upheld.
"Aston Villa's Chris Herd has had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld," read a statement on the FA's official website.
"As a result, the three-match suspension handed to him has been withdrawn."
Herd has expressed his delight at the outcome of the appeal, stating he feels vindicated.
"I'm very happy with the decision and I feel vindicated because I was convinced all along I had done nothing wrong," he said.
"My foot was being held by a West Brom player and I was just trying to free it from his grasp.
"I'm grateful and glad that the appeal committee reached the right decision."
