Cardiff and Birmingham have been fined by the Football Association after the recent melee between players of both clubs.
The Championship duo have been charged with failing to control their players during the November 2 encounter at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The Bluebirds were slapped with a £5,000 fine while Birmingham got a £7,500 one, after both clubs admitted the charge.
The south Wales side have accepted the standard penalty, but the Blues have requested a hearing.
The sanctions relate to an incident that occurred towards the end of the match in question.
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.
