St Johnstone win Steven Anderson red card appeal
St Johnstone have won their appeal against the red card shown to defender Steven Anderson in Saturday's 3-3 draw with Hearts at McDiarmid Park.
They have had their claim of wrongful dismissal upheld after referee Brian Colvin reviewed the incident.
And it has reduced the sending off to a yellow card for unsporting behaviour.
Anderson had been dismissed after 21 minutes in Perth, referee Colvin ruling that he had denied Dale Carrick a clear goalscoring opportunity.
But Saints manager Tommy Wright had argued that the Hearts forward had been heading away toward the touchline and was a long distance from goal.
St Johnstone decided not to appeal against the red card shown to goalkeeper Alan Mannus after a tussle in the closing moments with Hearts midfielder Ryan Stevenson, who was also dismissed.
Saints also accepted a two-match suspension for defender Tom Scobbie, who was reported following the game for "headbutting or attempting to headbutt" Hearts' Brad McKay.
