Poole Town’s Nick Hutchings has seen the red card he received against Havant and Waterlooville rescinded by the FA.
The goalkeeper was dismissed on 18 minutes by referee Ian Fissenden, after a collision with Hawks striker Alfie Rutherford just outside the penalty area.
But following the 3-1 defeat the Dolphins appealed to the FA to overturn the ban, and Hutchings is now available for Saturday’s clash with Eastbourne Borough.
Manager Tom Killick was incensed with the officiating against Havant and Waterlooville, as the Hawks made the most of their man advantage by scoring two late goals to thrust Poole back into the National League South drop zone.
The Dorset strugglers were scheduled to play East Thurrock United on Tuesday, but the fixture was called off after a pitch inspection.
