BURTON Albion midfielder Robbie Weir has had his red card at Mansfield Town rescinded.

The 25-year-old was sent off in the dying stages of Saturday's encounter at Field Mill following his reaction to a bad tackle from Jamie McGuire.

Referee Darren Drysdale sent Weir off for an alleged headbutt, but video replays showed the Northern Irishman did not make any contact with the Stags midfielder.

Weir's three-game ban is therefore lifted and he is available for the clash with Portsmouth on Sunday.
