Wolves midfielder Karl Henry insists there was no malice in the challenge which broke Bobby Zamora's leg on Saturday, and has sent his sympathy to the Fulham striker.
Zamora was carried off on a stretcher in the first half after his ankle buckled under a fair but robust challenge from Henry.
It was a cruel blow for a player who had signed a new contract the previous day and won his first England cap last month, and Henry told Wolves' website: "I'm sorry that the damage was done to him because it's the last thing I would have wanted.
"I know Bobby - we've got the same agent and we were away with the England Under-21s together. I'd never go out to hurt anyone, let alone him.
"I felt it was a good tackle. I just tried to win the ball, but I could see he was in agony straight away and called to their physio."
