[LNB] 'I've already apologised to the manager, [assistant] Terry Connor and the boys, but I'd also like to apologise to the supporters, especially the ones that travelled up to Wigan.[LNB] 'If we had had 11 men on the pitch, there is no doubt in my mind that we would have won that game. I'm desperately disappointed - if I could go back and re-run it all again I wouldn't make the challenge and I would have stayed on my feet.

I'd made the decision to go and win the ball and it turned out to be the wrong one.[LNB] 'We started really well and I thought we were well in contention - especially in the first half. And so again, I'd like to stress how sorry I am because I know that I have let people down. [LNB] 'And, on top of everything else, I'm going to miss three important games. For me it's a bad situation, but I've got every confidence that the boys can get a result against West Ham and kick on from there.'  [LNB] Graham Poll: No place for Henry and De Jong as broken bones add upHenry really isn't a dirty player, claims Wolves team-mate Doyle Wigan 2 Wolves 0: Rodallega seals win after Henry sees redWOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS FC
