Reading manager Steve Coppell will not fine Andre Bikey following his red card at Cardiff.
The Cameroon international was dismissed for allegedly punching Michael Chopra in an aerial challenge.
But Coppell will not discipline the defender, who he describes as a 'lovely bloke', for the incident.
"Anyone who knows me will know I am proud of the disciplinary record at the club," said Coppell.
"If he had straight-armed the lad then he'd be fined the maximum but he's a lovely bloke and just not that kind of player.
"That's the end of it and I certainly wouldn't condemn him for anything he did. He's not malicious, he competes and he's not a huge man so he has to jump."
