Jones apologises after red card
7th October 2014
Henry Jones issued an apology to his team-mates after his sending off in Monday's defeat to Ipswich.
The Under-21s bowed out of the Premier League Cup following a stoppage-time winner from the home side.
Kenji Gorre put the visitors ahead but Ipswich hit back straight after the interval.
Jones then saw red for a rash challenge in midfield, and the hosts grabbed the win courtesy of Curtis Obeng's stoppage-time own goal.
"We started the game really well," said Jones, who captained the side in the absence of Scott Tancock. "We created chances and probably should have gone on to score another goal after we took the lead.
"But we just couldn't keep it going in the second half and that has been a problem for us so far this season.
"I think a second goal would have killed them off but we couldn't seem to get it.
"Obviously things changed after I got sent off and it became difficult for us. But I'd like to apologise to all the boys - it was completely out of character and there was just a bit of frustration.
"It was an unfortunate end to the game - but these things happen in football and we have to move on.
"We'll analyse the game, take the positives from it and go again when we play Crewe next week."
