Cardiff City manager Neil Harris has received a one-match touchline ban and a £2,000 fine following his sending off in Wycombe's 2-1 win over the Bluebirds. 

The former Millwall boss was dismissed nine minutes from the end after he was accused of using ‘abusive and/or insulting language towards a match official.’

Wycombe were 2-0 up at the time of Harris’ sending off, with Ryan Tafazolli and David Wheeler getting Wanderers’ goals before David Hoilett scored an injury-time consolation for the Welsh side.

A statement on the FA Spokesperson Twitter account said: “Cardiff City FC’s Neil Harris has been suspended from the touchline for one match and fined £2,000 for a breach of FA Rule E3 that occurred during an EFL Championship match against Wycombe Wanderers FC on Tuesday, December 29, 2020.

“The manager admitted that he used abusive and insulting language towards a match official during the 81st minute of the match and accepted the standard penalty.”
