Calderon red card appeal upheld
Albion have won their appeal to the FA against Inigo Calderon's controversial red card in Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat by Newport County at The Amex.
The Spanish full-back was facing a three-match ban for a challenge which left Newport defender Byron Anthony with a broken leg but he will now be available for Saturday's home game against Derby County, the trip to Birmingham on August 17 and Burnley's visit a week later.
Referee Brendan Malone dismissed Calderon midway through the second half, with Albion leading 1-0. The decision proved pivotal as County went on to win 3-1 after-extra-time.
Replays showed Calderon was trying to kick the ball and to take evasive action as Anthony slid into a 50-50-challenge.
