Bradford reinstated after appeal



Bradford City have been reinstated into the FA Cup after successfully appealing against a decision to expel them for fielding an ineligible player, the FA said on Wednesday.

The news caps a remarkable 24 hours for the fourth-tier club who knocked Premier League Arsenal out of the League Cup on penalties on Tuesday.

Bradford were expelled from this season's FA Cup after fielding on-loan Newcastle United defender Curtis Good in their second-round 1-1 draw with Brentford before they registered him.

The League Two side appealed on the grounds that the punishment was too harsh and the governing body's appeal board agreed, fining Bradford 1 000 pounds ($1 600) instead.

Their second-round replay with Brentford will now go ahead as planned on December 18.
