Leicester City succeed in Jermaine Beckford appeal

Jermaine Beckford

Leicester City have won their appeal against the sending-off of striker Jermaine Beckford during Saturday's defeat at Brighton.

The 28-year-old was dismissed following an exchange of words with Albion's Lewis Dunk during the Foxes' 1-0 loss.

However, the Football Association upheld Leicester's appeal and revoked Beckford's three-match ban for alleged violent conduct.

He will now be available for Saturday's home Championship clash with Cardiff.
