Cahill wins appeal against red card

Gary Cahill was successful in his appeal of the red card he was issued during Bolton's loss to Tottenham on Saturday.

The Bolton defender was given his marching orders by referee Stuart Atwell for bringing down Scott Parker in the 18th minute near the sideline at midfield.

Cahill appealed the decision on the basis that it did not constitute a goal- scoring opportunity, given how far away from the goal the incident occurred. The English Football Association subsequently withdrew the one-match suspension.
