Walsall have today confirmed they have lodged an appeal with the Football Association to have Joe Edwards red card overturned following video analysis.

Edwards was sent off after sixteen minutes against Bolton for an alleged elbow but replays have shown that Edwards eyes were firmly on the ball and no malice was intended.

Should the FA over turn his red card then he will eligible for Saturday’s trip to Peterborough. Should the appeal fail, then Edwards will miss the next three games.
