Huddersfield Town winger Gary Roberts has been suspended for three games for his part in a melee during Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Bristol Rovers.
The 25-year-old had thought he had escaped punishment for the incident after the referee failed to issue the former Ipswich man with as little as a yellow card.
However after watching footage of the scuffle the referee has decided to brandish the Terriers ace with a retrospective red card.
Huddersfield have accepted the ban and have also admitted a charge of failing to control their players.
"The recording of the incident does not make pleasant viewing, it could and should have been avoided," Huddersfield chief executive Nigel Clibbens told the club's official website.
"As a result we have lost a player for three games and face penalties as a club.
"The club has chosen to admit the charge of misconduct and Gary will not appeal his red card. We will move on and put it behind us."
