Matej Vydra: Red card overturned
Watford have been successful in their appeal against the red card shown to Matej Vydra against Middlesbrough at the weekend.
The striker was sent off two minutes before half-time in the 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road after being shown a second yellow card for an alleged stamp on Nicky Bailey.
Hornets boss Gianfranco Zola indicated after the match that he would appeal against the decision and the FA have upheld his view.
The 20-year-old, who is currently on international duty with the Czech Republic, will now be available for the clash with Peterborough on 20 October.
