RUFC - Guy disappointed in red card
Rotherham United loanee, Guy Branston admitted that he 'got it wrong' with the tackle that earned him a red card on Friday night against Bristol Rovers.
The thirty-two year old, who only re-joined the Millers on Friday morning on a three-month loan deal from Bradford City, said, 'I was devastated. I have gone to win the ball and I didn't hurt anyone, but the rules are you can't tackle with two feet. I meant to win the ball and I thought if I don't go in full-hearted I might get myself hurt. I made the wrong decision, but I'm one of those defenders who likes to win tackles.'
Guy was deemed to have gone in two-footed on Rovers' Lee Brown with the game at three-two to the home side. The Millers let in another two goals after Branston's nineteenth red card of his career.
Speaking about coming back to Rotherham, Guy said, 'I've got a smile on my face being here and I've come here to play games and help the club get back to winning ways. I'm just going to concentrate on my next game, whenever that might be.'
Guy will get a three match ban for the straight red and won't be able to play against his parent club, Bradford, in November and it's thought that they don't want him to be involved in any FA Cup games either.
