Massimo Luongo: FA overturn Sheffield Wednesday midfielder's ban

6 hours ago From the section Sheff Wed

Massimo Luongo walks off ruefully in the 5-0 defeat by Blackburn following his dismissal

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Massimo Luongo has had a three-match suspension withdrawn with immediate effect by the Football Association.

The 27-year-old was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Lewis Travis, deemed 'serious foul play', in Saturday's 5-0 defeat by Blackburn.

However, Wednesday appealed the call by referee Jared Gillett, and the initial verdict was overturned on review.

He can now play in Saturday's FA Cup tie against former club QPR.

Isn't this the former A-League referee that used to cause so many problems for AU back in the day, particularly Boogard when he was here.
He used to book Boogs just for looking at an opponent. OM :wink:
The older I get the better I was.
