Phil Parkinson has been fined £3,000 by The FA, but avoided a touchline ban following his dismissal in Bolton's 5-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Parkinson was sent to the stands by match referee Keith Stroud at Molineux, along with his counterpart Nuno Espirito Santo, after the pair clashed as a result of a rash challenge by David Wheater on Wolves' Diego Jota.

Santo has been hit with a £2,000 fine by authorities, with Parkinson's punishment greater due to the fact that it is the second time he has been charged this season - having also been sent off in August's Carabao Cup victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Despite accepting the charge, Parkinson will not be subjected to a touchline ban after he successfully appealed against the punishment to an Independent Regulatory Commission.

As a result, he will be present in the dugout for Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest.
