Cardiff and Birmingham have been fined by the Football Association for failing to control their players during the recent Championship clash between the clubs.
Cardiff were fined £5,000 and Birmingham £7,500 after both clubs admitted the charge. Cardiff accepted the standard penalty and Birmingham requested a hearing.
The sanctions relate to an incident that occurred towards the end of the match at the Cardiff City Stadium on November 2.
Birmingham defender Harlee Dean was shown a red card in the third minute of added time for elbowing Joe Ralls, who scored a hat-trick in Cardiff’s 4-2 victory, in an aerial duel.
Blues’ appeal to overturn the sending-off was unsuccessful, with Dean currently serving a three-match suspension.
Following the clash, a melee ensued involving the two sets of players. Earlier in the game, Cardiff striker Danny Ward was also sent off.
