Birmingham City handed major defensive boost ahead of Leeds game on Friday



Birmingham City have announced on their official website that they have successfully won their appeal against Paul Robinson’s red card.

Paul Robinson was sent off during Birmingham City’s 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux last Friday for an incident which referee Stephen Martin judged to be violent conduct.

The veteran defender was given his marching orders early in the second half after an altercation with Wolves striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and was due to serve a three match suspension for violent conduct.

However, Birmingham City lodged an appeal against that decision and the FA have overturned the decision.

An Independent Regulatory Commission has cleared the subsequent suspension and Paul Robinson is now available for selection in the next match.

That next match is at home against high flying Leeds United on Friday night and Robinson’s availability will please Blues boss Gianfranco Zola, who is short of defensive cover at the moment.

Birmingham fans – what do you make of this? Is this good news? Is this the boost you need? Let us know in the comments below…
