Hull City have confirmed striker Oumar Niasse red rad has been reversed.

The 27-year-old Senegal international was shown a straight red card for a tackle on M’Baye Niang during Hull’s 2-0 win over the Hornets on Saturday.

Hull successfully appealed to the FA against Niasse’s red card – which would have led to a three-match ban.

It means Niasse will be available for Hull’s trip to Southampton on Saturday.

Hull City are two points above the relegation zone with four games to play.
