Cameron red card overturned

Stoke midfielder Geoff Cameron is in contention to feature against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday after his red-card appeal was successful.

The United States international was sent off towards the end of the Potters' 2-1 defeat at West Brom on Saturday for shoving Claudio Yacob in retaliation to a challenge from the Argentine.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes confirmed after the match at the Hawthorns that they planned to contest the dismissal, and the Football Association have subsequently overturned the referee's decision.

The 30-year-old is therefore available to Hughes, whose side play hosts to the Reds in the first leg of their last-four tie in the League Cup. He was due to serve a three-match ban.

A statement the FA said: "An Independent Regulatory Commission found that the match referee had made an obvious error in dismissing the Stoke City player for violent conduct during the game against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday."
