Newcastle midfielder Danny Guthrie will not receive an extended ban for his challenge on Hull forward Craig Fagan.
The 21-year-old was dismissed in stoppage time during the Magpies' 2-1 home defeat on Saturday after taking a wild swing at Fagan, who was left with a fractured left leg, but the Football Association confirmed that it can take no further action on top of a mandatory three-match suspension for the red card.
A spokesman said: "Every sending off carries an automatic sanction under the current regulations. The FA doesn't have the power to extend automatic suspensions."
The spokesman added: "The only circumstances in which we could take any further action would be to issue an additional charge against a player.
"This occurs only in exceptional cases, such as Ben Thatcher's challenge on Pedro Mendes in 2006."
