Swans win Fernandez appeal

30th October 2014
Swansea City can confirm that the Football Association has rescinded the red card shown to defender Federico Fernandez against Liverpool in midweek.

The Argentinian defender was shown a straight red card by referee Keith Stroud for a tackle on Philippe Coutinho during stoppage time in the 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Anfield.

The tackle was deemed as serious foul play and Fernandez faced a three-match ban, starting with this weekend's Barclays Premier League trip to Everton.

However, the club appealed against the decision with a written statement and video evidence before an FA appeals panel overturned the red card this afternoon.

Fernandez is now free to make the trip to Goodison Park on Saturday.
