Walsall have successfully appealed against the red card given to captain Adam Chambers in Tuesday's 1-0 FA Cup first-round replay loss to Shrewsbury.

The 34-year-old could have been facing a three-match ban, but is now available for his team's League One meeting with Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

Speaking to BBC WM 95.6 after Tuesday's match, Walsall boss Dean Smith said the decision was "totally bewildering".

Walsall currently lie 16th in League One with 19 points from 17 games.
