Sunderland captain John O'Shea feels "common sense" will have been shown if Wes Brown's red card against Stoke is overturned by the Football Association.
Black Cats defender Brown was controversially dismissed in the 36th minute of his team's 2-0 Premier League defeat at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday after making a sliding challenge on Charlie Adam.

It's so frustrating.
We were a goal down at that stage but I thought we were in clear control of the game and it gave Stoke a massive, massive lift.
The ref's not had the best of days, has he?
Hopefully the red card will get overturned.
He took his time over it but he still managed to get it wrong because Wes has clearly won the ball. I don't think he even touched Adam.
