Purse succeeds in red card appeal

Cardiff City

Cardiff City captain Darren Purse has had his red card in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at QPR overturned.

The Bluebirds centre back was shown a straight red card on 28 minutes for a late and high tackle on Lee Cook.

He was one of two Cardiff players sent off with defender Miguel Comminges receiving two yellows late on.

But an FAW hearing overturned the card handed out by referee Lee Probert on Tuesday and Purse is available to play against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"It's great news for myself and hopefully we can get a few wins from the next three games," said Purse.
