Perth Glory defender Dino Djulbic has accepted his five-match ban for unsporting conduct towards a match official in his side's 5-2 loss to Sydney FC last week.

Djulbic was cleared of an alleged spitting charge, but was found guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct which carries a minimum three-match suspension.

The match review panel felt the incident warranted a four-game suspension, with an additional match added to Djulbic's ban for the red card he received in the clash.

Djulbic will be available for selection for Perth's Round 9 clash against Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium on October 26.
