Scott Wharton: Blackburn Rovers defender has Norwich red card overturned

Blackburn defender Scott Wharton has had his red card overturned from their Championship win against Norwich after appealing against the decision.

The 26-year-old was dismissed by referee Josh Smith after 54 minutes for denying a goalscoring opportunity.

Wharton saw red for tripping Canaries winger Onel Hernandez, following a defensive error from Rovers.

The decision means Wharton will now be available for Friday's Lancashire derby against Preston North End.
