FOOTBALL: Keeper Ross Barn again.

Byline: By Carl Askew

BARNET keeper Ross Flitney won't serve a ban for his red card on Wednesday against Manchester United after the English FA upheld his appeal for wrongful dismissal.

The 21-year-old was dismissed by referee Richard Beeby less than two minutes into his side's 4-1 Carling Cup defeat at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Flitney handled outside his penalty area and was shown a straight red card by Beeby, even though he didn't appear to be denying any United player a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Former Celtic midfielder Liam Miller scored from the resulting free-kick and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson described the decision as"harsh".

Flitney would have received an automatic one-match ban for the dismissal but he will now be available for today's League Two clash at home to fellow strugglers Rushden and Diamonds.

An FA statement read: "At a disciplinary commission hearing today Barnet keeper Ross Flitney had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld. He will therefore not serve any suspension
