Dummett appeal upheld

Newcastle's Paul Dummett has had his claim of wrongful dismissal upheld after an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

The 22-year-old defender was given a straight red card by referee Phil Dowd during Newcastle's 2-1 defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.

But Dummett will not have to serve a ban when the 2014-2015 Barclays Premier League season starts in August after the sending off was overturned on Tuesday.
