Midfielder Sam Morsy has issued a public apology through the official Port Vale website for his red carded challenge during the 2-2 draw with Rochdale.
I can only apologise that my sending off affected the result last Tuesday…
Morsy told the official website: “I appreciate that my red card let everyone down, including the management, my team-mates and the supporters of the club, as well as myself.
“I can assure everyone that there was absolutely no malice in the challenge, just a mistimed intent to win the ball in the heat of the moment, which I now know was the wrong decision at the time.
“This season has been a huge learning curve in my development as a player and I can only apologise that my sending off affected the result last Tuesday. There is no-one more disappointed with that than me.”
