The Football Association withdraws the suspensions given to Newcastle United pair Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett after their red cards against Nottingham Forest.

Newcastle United pair Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett have had the red cards they received against Nottingham Forest withdrawn by the Football Association.

On Friday night, Newcastle were reduced to nine men in the Championship fixture at the City Ground after Shelvey and Dummett were involved in separate incidents with Forest's Henri Lansbury.

Shelvey was dismissed for violent conduct after the referee deemed that he had kicked out at Lansbury, while Dummett was adjudged to have denied a goalscoring opportunity in the penalty area.

However, after Newcastle appealed the decisions, the FA has announced that both claims for wrongful dismissal have been successful.

Newcastle suffered a 2-1 defeat after Jamaal Lascelles netted a late own goal.
