The Football Association has cleared Rotherham United captain Pablo Mills of any wrongdoing following his collision with Brentford striker Nathan Elder in Saturday's goalless draw between the two teams.
The Bees player suffered fractures to the cheekbone and eye socket after challenging for a high ball with Mills.
After the game Brentford boss Andy Scott intimated that he thought Mills had deliberately tried to hurt his player but the FA, after reviewing the incident and receiving the referee's report, disagree.
The Millers' chief operating officer Paul Douglas said of the decision: "We're pleased with the ruling from the FA clearing Pablo Mills after the collision with Nathan Elder last Saturday.
"Everyone at our club would like to reiterate that our thoughts and best wishes are with Nathan, and we hope he makes a speedy and full recovery from his injury."
