Delap was jokingly dismissed in the first half for a sliding challenge on Crawley's David Hunt, although the refs decision looked like it was swayed by the fourth official and Steve Evans’ rant on the touchline.

Potters boss Tony Pulis was visibly frustrated by the fact that his side had been shafted once again by an undeserved red card and he decided to appeal against the decision.

An FA statement read: "Stoke City's Rory Delap has had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld.

"As a result, the three-match suspension handed to him has been withdrawn with immediate effect."
