The English Football Association has reduced Wolverhampton Wanderers’ goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme’s three-match suspension by one game.
This was confirmed on the FA’s official website on Tuesday, following an appeal by the Championship side.
Ikeme was shown a straight red for pushing Norwich City’s player, Wes Hoolahan, after he accused the player of diving inside the penalty area to deceive the referee.
Wolves lost the game 3-1.
“Carl Ikeme’s three-match suspension for violent conduct has been reduced to two matches after a claim of excessive punishment was successful,” a statement on the FA’s website reads.
“An earlier wrongful dismissal claim in relation to the Wolverhampton Wanderers player’s sending off against Norwich City on Saturday [21 January 2017] was rejected.
“Both claims were heard before an Independent Regulatory Commission today.”
