Waasland-Beveren star Nana Ampomah has been handed a two-match ban for pushing a referee after their painful 3-2 against KV Kortrijk of last week which got him sent off.
The 22-year-old also has a one-match suspended ban hanging over him.
The Federal Prosecutor's Office initially wanted a suspension of four match days and a 4,000 euro fine.
But after extensive apologies from Ampomah, the Disputes Committee decided to mitigate.
The final verdict was two matches effective and one suspended plus a fine of 2,500 euros.
Ampomah started serving his ban on Saturday against Royal Union Saint-Gilloise and Beveren lost 5-1.
He will complete serving his ban after next Saturday's home clash against Cercle Brugge in the playoffs.
