Lisbie’s red card appeal successful
Kevin Lisbie will play a part in Colchester United’s play-off push after the FA today overturned his three-match suspension.
COLCHESTER United were given a major boost today with the news that Kevin Lisbie’s three-match suspension has been overturned by the Football Association.
The 31-year-old striker was sent off by referee Michael Jones at Charlton on Tuesday night after he went head-to-head with opposition skipper Nicky Bailey.
A failed appeal could have potentially seen Lisbie miss out on Colchester’s late push for the play-offs, but manager Aidy Boothroyd will now have his top goalscorer available.
“I think in situations like this you put your faith in the system,” said the U’s boss.
