Mark Ellis: Forest Green Rovers defender has red card decision overturned

Forest Green Rovers will be able to select Carlisle United loanee Mark Ellis for Saturday’s important fixture at home to Wrexham following a successful appeal.

Defender Ellis received a straight red from referee Carl Brook in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win away at Sutton following a tackle on Maxime Biamou.

But, the club have confirmed that the 28-year-old will be available on Saturday after a FA Panel review found nothing wrong with the offence which led to the suspension.
