Tom Huddlestone red card for Tottenham rescinded by FA

Tom Huddlestone is sent off against Norwich

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Huddlestone's red card against Norwich has been rescinded after a successful appeal to the FA.

Substitute Huddlestone was sent off by referee Mark Halsey for a 90th minute tackle on Jonny Howson in Saturday's 1-1 home Premier League draw.

Spurs contested the red card and the FA has withdrawn his three-match ban.

Huddlestone, 25, has suffered with ankle problems and was making his first appearance for more than a year.

He is now available for the London club's next match at Reading on 16 September.
