Rooney Red Card Appeal Succesful

Great news for the Bluebirds!

Following an appeal, John Rooney’s red card against Torquay United on Saturday has been overturned.

The Bluebirds lodged an appeal after the midfielder was shown a straight red card for an alleged deliberate hand ball in the 42nd minute at Plainmoor. The incorrect decision also resulted in a penalty for Torquay with the scores locked at 1-1 going into the half time break.

The FA confirmed on Monday evening that our appeal had been successful, meaning the Bluebirds will have their key man available for our clash with Dagenham & Redbridge at Victoria Road on Tuesday night.
