The club submitted video evidence supporting their case, which was heard before an FA panel earlier today, and the game’s governing body ruled Oxfordshire referee Graham Scott made a mistake in sending the player off.

Berra was dismissed for tussling with Hornets striker Troy Deeney in the 25th minute in the game, which Wolves lost 2-1.

The Scotland international had been facing a one-match ban, but the 27-year-old will now be available for Saturday’s visit of Nottingham Forest.

The previous time Wolves lodged an appeal, Nenad Milijas’ red card against Arsenal last December, they lost.
