Norwich and Cardiff clashed in a 0-0 draw at Carrow Road.

Norwich have been fined £20,000 after admitting a Football Association charge in relation to their their players being involved in an stoppage-time scuffle against Cardiff.

A confrontation blew up at the end of the goalless Premier League draw after Canaries midfielder Leroy Fer attempted to score from a throw-in when Cardiff had put the ball out for an injury - the effort was ruled out by the referee on the basis that he had not restarted play.

An FA statement said: "Norwich City have been fined the standard penalty of £20,000 after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20(a) in relation to their game against Cardiff City on 26 October 2013.

"The charge was that the club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in or around the 94th minute of this fixture."

Cardiff were also charged with the same breach which they have admitted.

The club has, however, rejected the standard penalty and a hearing will now take place to determine their sanction.
