Spurs defender Rose gets red card rescinded

LONDON (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has had the red card he received in Wednesday's defeat by Manchester City rescinded, the Football Association said on Friday.

"The appeal against his one-match ban has been upheld," an FA spokesman told Reuters on Friday, meaning the left back is available for fifth-placed Tottenham's Premier League trip to lowly Hull City on Saturday.

Rose was sent off in the second half of City's 5-1 victory in the league for a tackle on striker Edin Dzeko that yielded a penalty and the second goal for the visitors.

Television replays, however, showed the Spurs player had taken the ball and not his opponent.
