Dunne says sorry for dismissal

7 October 2013

Charles Dunne has apologised for his red card in Saturday’s clash with Burton Albion at Adams Park.

The 20-year-old was shown a yellow card in either half of the 2-1 defeat to the Brewers.
With it being his second sending off the season following his dismissal at Oxford United, he will be suspended for Wycombe’s next two games.

However, he wasn’t going to be available for selection against Torquay United on Saturday due to being on international duty with Republic of Ireland U21s.

Dunne tweeted after the game: “Just want to apologise to the fans for getting sent off. It was unfair on my team mates. WWFC means a lot to me so any fans doubting that are wrong.”

Gareth Ainsworth said: “Charles was very rash and very silly. It's a young pro's tackle. The last thing I said to him was be careful. I've been in that situation, I've been sent off before.

“It was a rash challenge to do on a yellow card and he'll be feeling bad tonight. It's not all down to him but it didn't help, with 10 men and the penalty and a few decisions I did disagree with.

“Charles has apologised to the boys. He's a man, he'll take in on the chin. It's part of his learning and it's unfortunate he's getting lessons in the first team on the pitch.
“It takes a big man to stand up and say it's my fault and I'm sorry, and he's done that. I don't want anyone giving Charles Dunne any stick, he's going to feel bad enough.”
