Shrewsbury win appeal over Norburn’s red card

Shrewsbury have won their appeal against midfielder Oliver Norburn’s red card in the FA Cup tie against Mansfield.

Norburn was sent off after an hour of Shrewsbury’s 2-0 second-round win on Saturday following an incident in the centre circle.

A Football Association statement read: “Oliver Norburn is available for selection after a claim of wrongful dismissal was upheld by an independent Regulatory Commission.”

Norburn would have served a three-match ban but is now free to play in Shrewsbury’s Sky Bet League One games against Oxford, Coventry and Blackpool.
