The trouble that marred Cardiff's fractious 2-2 draw with Swansea earlier this month has seen a fan banned from all football for three years.
Referee Mike Dean was hit on the head by a coin thrown from the stands in the 42nd minute of the Welsh derby at Ninian Park on April 5. The Premier League official required lengthy medical treatment to stop blood coming from the wound caused by the coin.
A 24-year-old man has now been given a three-year banning order and fined Â£200 after admitting to throwing a "missile" during the game and following legal discussions the charge has been amended to "throwing a missile" rather than "throwing a coin".
The body of Professional Game Match Officials (PGMO) said that they would not be making any comment on the decision.
