The central defender was sent off in the 25th minute at Vicarage Road after tangling with Hornets striker Troy Deeney.

Berra appeared to be holding back Deeney as he burst through on goal, and was dismissed for "denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity".

Wolves launched an appeal against the decision and a meeting of the FA Regulatory Commission agreed that it was a case of wrongful dismissal.

Berra will now not serve a one-match ban and will be available for Saturday's Championship game against Nottingham Forest at Molineux.

Wolves boss Stale Solbakken was enraged by the decision, and he said after the game: "I think I agree with everyone who says it's a very harsh one.

"There's no appeals from anyone, from a Watford player or even the dugout, and I think the referee just created a problem for himself after that."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
