BEN Pollock has had his red card received against Stamford rescinded following an appeal by the Bulls.

The midfielder received a straight red for an alleged elbow during Hereford's 2-0 win in the FA Trophy fourth round tie.

However, following an appeal by Hereford to the FA the card has been rescinded and three-match ban quashed.

He will now be available for Hereford's fifth round tie against Leamington on February 6.

"I don't think he really did too much if we're going to be honest about it," said Hereford manager Josh Gowling.

"He went in for a 50-50 header and half pulled out so I don't think there was much in it.

"I think the (opposition) players reaction got him the red card rather than the incident.

"Sometimes if you want to appeal things with the FA and it's not recorded then you've just got to go on the FA's report and hope they'll be lenient.

"Where as now we get loads of different angles. We film the games anyway and they (Stamford) had their stream.

"So we had different angles and different shots. We can put them into the FA."

Swindon loanee Luke Haines also received a red card in the FA Trophy but that will stand.
