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.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
