Spence accepts responsibility after first red card of his career

Jordan Spence has apologised to his team-mates and the Town fans after his red card in the defeat at Fulham.

The defender was sent-off for the first time in his career after catching Aboubakar Kamara with a late challenge early in the second-half with Blues a goal up at the time.

“It does look bad having watched it back but there was no intention to hurt anyone,” a disappointed Jordan told the Club website.

“It is the first time I have been sent-off and anyone that has followed my career knows I’m not that type of player or person. I would never try and hurt a fellow player.

“I’ve gone at speed to close him down and have gone into him and once you do that, you are at the referee’s call.

“It has affected the result and I feel terrible about that. We were right in the game until that and all I can do is apologise to the players, the staff and the supporters.”

Jordan is set to be suspended for three games, starting with Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Sheffield United.
