Huzzah! An overturning of the red card today means that Abdul Osman will be back to face Barnet on Saturday. Osman was very harshly shown his marching orders just before half-time but the Football Association has reviewed the incident and rescinded the decision.
So finally some sense from the FA who also reduced the ban of Bradford City midfielder Tommy Doherty from three games to one after he saw red during the defeat to Wycombe on Saturday.
So are we seeing some lenience from the F.A. at last? I personally can’t remember a decision like this for the Cobblers in recent years so it’s good to see them view the incident and over rule the referee.
The red card remains on Osman’s record but there will be no ban in place as we head to Underhill this weekend.
