Dawson ban after red card mix-up.
CRAIG DAWSON will serve a one-match ban after Gareth McAuley's mistaken red card was transferred to his West Brom team-mate.
The Football Association has confirmed the defender will be banned instead of McAuley.
Referee Neil Swarbrick sent McAuley off by mistake after Dawson had fouled Wilfried Bony in the Baggies' 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.
Swarbrick apologised, via a statement from the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd, and the case of mistaken identity has been accepted by an Independent Regulatory Commission.
An FA n F statement confirmed: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today (Monday 23 March 2015), a claim of mistaken identity in relation to West Bromwich Albion's Gareth McAuley was successful."
