The Wellington Phoenix midfielder Mandi has had his ban reduced from three to two weeks following an appeal.
An independent match review panel handed the Spaniard the three week suspension after he was shown a straight red card for his reckless challenge on Adelaide United's Vince Lia during their scoreless draw on Saturday.
Mandi lashed out at Lia while he was on the ground contesting for the ball in the 64th minute, with the offence deemed by the MRP to be an "assault on a player".
The Phoenix appealled the categorisation of the ban, which was deemed to be violent misconduct without the ball.
Club officials argued it was with the ball, which was still in sight before Mandi swung his leg towards a prone Lia.
The Disciplinary Committee decided to suspend the third week of the suspension.
It means Mandi will miss Saturday's home game against Central Coast Mariners but will be available for the round 14 clash against Melbourne Victory.
29 year old Mandi had started every game for the Phoenix this season, up until the start of his ban.
