Chris Morgan does not want to see any action taken against Lee McCulloch despite the Sheffield United captain being on the receiving end of a swinging arm in Saturday's game against Wigan.
Morgan was left with a swollen and cut right eye after being caught by McCulloch in injury time of the 1-0 win for The Blades at The JJB Stadium.
The Latics midfielder immediately offered his apologies to Morgan after the game, but the Football Association may yet decide to take retrospective action as it is believed that referee Peter Walton did not witness the incident.
Wigan could lose McCulloch for three games if charges of violent conduct are brought against the Scot, but Morgan does not want his opponent to be punished following his quick apology.
"To be honest I'm not into all that [further action]," Morgan told Sky Sports.
"At the end of the day if you start moaning about things that happen to your players, sometime further down the line it will get picked up on what we do.
"Lee has been man enough to come out and knock on our door and say sorry and it takes a lot to do that, and we had a chat and no hard feelings, get on with it."
