Jones was shown a yellow card for his tackle on Yves Bissouma during the first half of Saturday’s clash, only for referee Simon Hooper to change his punishment to a red card after being advised by the VAR to check the pitchside monitor.
It was a contentious decision from Hooper, with Jones unfortunate to follow through on Bissouma after his foot slipped over the top of the ball.
The decision to upgrade his punishment to a dismissal means the challenge was classed as serious foul play and therefore worthy of a three-game ban.
The images Hooper was shown on the monitor did not follow VAR protocol and that likely acted as encouragement for the Reds to launch their appeal.
There was a possibility that the suspension would be increased to four matches had the appeal been deemed ‘frivolous’, but that is not concluded to be the case following the review.
Jones is eligible to feature in Thursday night’s Europa League clash with Union SG, with the punishment not applying in UEFA competitions.
