The Football Association has rescinded Northampton Town defender Abdul Osman's three-match ban following an appeal from the club.

However the red card will remain on Osman's record.

The 23-year-old was given a straight red card by referee Ian Williamson for a tackle on Anthony Griffith in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Port Vale.

"We're delighted that such an important player to us will be available for selection," said boss Ian Sampson.
