FC Halifax Town have successfully appealed the sending off of goalkeeper Russell Griffiths during Saturday’s 4-1 win at Gateshead.

He was sent off during the first half of the match by referee Michael Salisbury for denying a goal scoring opportunity at the weekend, with the hosts awarded a penalty from which striker Ryan Bowman equalised.

But the decision has now been overturned meaning the Everton loanee will now be available for the visit of Dover Athletic on Saturday.
