Cardiff City will have captain Craig Bellamy available after the attacker was cleared of improper conduct by an FAW panel on Wednesday. The Bluebirds were fined £5k for failing to control the players during a brawl in the dying moments of the 2-2 draw with Reading.

Mikele Leigertwood was previously found guilty of violent conduct (for a punch on Chopra), and the Royals were fined £40k.

Bellamy was also cited for the lesser charge of improper conduct, alledgedly for throwing a water bottle in the tunnel. However, the club and player prepared a robust defense and were able to avoid a ban or fine for the player.
