Crystal Palace defender Claude Davis will miss the rest of the season after he was banned for three matches by the Football Association for his elbow on Cardiff defender Roger Johnson.
The on-loan Derby man was not punished by referee Russell Booth for the incident during last Saturday's Coca-Cola Championship match that led to Johnson spending two nights in hospital.
But City were so incensed by the challenge that chairman Peter Ridsdale asked the FA to review the footage and, as a result, the Jamaica international has been suspended.
Palace boss Neil Warnock told the South London Press: "The referee told us after the game that he saw it and thought it was inconclusive so I don't know what has changed his mind.
"There are just no comparisons between some of the challenges I've seen that haven't been punished. That's Claude done for the season now."
Johnson spoke about the incident for the first time today, and told Wales Online: "It's clear for everyone to see what went on and it's clear in my eyes. I'm disappointed with the player."
