Inverness win fight to overturn Meekings suspension

Inverness have won their fight to allow Josh Meekings to play in the League Cup final.

The club succeeded in their wrongful dismissal claim following the defenders' sending-off in the 90th minute of their semi-final victory over Hearts.

A Scottish Football Association disciplinary tribunal downgraded his red card for a foul on Scott Robinson, which referee John Beaton deemed violent conduct, to a yellow for "unsporting behaviour - deliberately tripping".

Meekings will now be able to face Aberdeen at Celtic Park on March 16 and is also now eligible for Saturday's William Hill Scottish Cup fifth-round clash at Stranraer.

His central defensive partner, Gary Warren, is definitely suspended for the final after being sent off against Hearts for two bookable offences.
