Martin's red card appeal succesful

19 November 2021

Josh Martin’s three-match suspension has been withdrawn by the FA after MK Dons were successful in their appeal of his dismissal in Tuesday’s Emirates FA Cup tie with Stevenage.

Martin was shown a straight red card by referee Alan Young for alleged violent conduct but an independent Regulatory Commission has confirmed that this was the wrong decision.

An FA statement read: “An independent Regulatory Commission has removed Josh Martin’s three-match suspension following a successful claim of wrongful dismissal.

“The Milton Keynes Dons FC player was sent off for violent conduct during their Emirates FA Cup match against Stevenage FC on Tuesday [16/11/21]."

As a result of this appeal, Martin will be available for selection on Saturday when MK Dons take on Burton Albion at Stadium MK.
