DJ `sorry' for seeing red

27 February 2011 02:00
Blackpool striker DJ Campbell has issued an apology following a moment of madness that has left him staring at a three-match ban. Campbell was given a straight red card by referee Neil Swarbrick in the 43rd minute of the 4-0 hammering by Wolves at Molineux, using both hands to push defender Richard Stearman in the face. It was an act described by manager Ian Holloway as "unacceptable" and at a time when Blackpool were already trailing 1-0, there was no way back for the Seasiders who capitulated after the interval. Campbell will now miss next Monday's Bloomfield Road clash against Chelsea, as well as trips to Blackburn and Fulham at a crucial time when the club are looking to stay out of the relegation zone. Responding on Twitter, Campbell said: "Peeps sorry about yesterday I've let my team mates & u guys down, I no I play with 2much passion but that's how I am wish I could take it bk (sic)."
