WFC ROAD TO WEMBLEY: Jose Holebas available to play in FA Cup final after red card overturned 

 Published on: 13th May 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Watford FC

Watford defender Jose Holebas is now available for selection for the FA Cup final against Manchester City after his recent red card was overturned.

The 34-year-old was sent off in Sunday’s 4-1 defeat against West Ham as referee, Chris Kavanagh believed that he denied a clear goal scoring opportunity by tugging back Michail Antonio.

The left-back, who has been a fan favourite this season, had his red card rescinded after the club successfully appealed to the FA.

The Hornets play back-to-back champions, Manchester City, who will be going for the domestic treble (Carabao Cup, Premier League and FA Cup) this Saturday (May 18) at Wembley Stadium.
