Tommy Puts The Sending Off Wright

Tommy Puts The Sending Off Wright

Following the game against Brentford where Tommy Wright saw red after two bookable offences the official site asked him for his views.

'I didn't think I deserved to be sent off. The referee booked me for my first tackle of the game and the second challenge I've simply gone up for a header. I won the header, and having played on for a couple of seconds the referee saw their lad on the floor and blew up for elbowing.

'The referee's report says that the first challenge was a violent tackle, but there was nothing malicious about it at all. I was looking to slide in and clear the ball but I just clipped the player. I didn't even feel the second incident. I think the player knew I could have been sent off and therefore made a meal of it. I felt quite sharp up until the sending off but obviously with an hour still to play I knew it was going to mean hard work for the lads.'
