Angella was dismissed after referee Carl Boyeson believed it was the Italian and not Hall who had denied Lewis Grabban a clear goalscoring opportunity during the 1-1 draw at Bournemouth.

Watford also appealed the decision to award Hall a red card, but that was unsuccessful.

Hall will now serve a one-match ban, keeping him out of Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Manchester City, but Angella is free to play.
