Huddersfield winger Lionel Ainsworth is hoping an apology will help change Brentford manager Andy Scott's mind over whether he plays in the Bees' last two games of the season.
Ainsworth, currently on loan at Brentford, stormed straight down the tunnel after being substituted by Scott in Saturday's 1-1 home draw with Yeovil, prompting a furious Bees boss to claim later that the 22-year-old would not play for his side again.
Ainsworth told the Hounslow Chronicle: "I'll be apologising to Andy Scott and my team-mates. I wanted to play on and didn't feel I was having a bad game, but I took my frustration out in the wrong way."
He added: "That's football. I want to play, but if I'm not involved then I'm not involved and that's the consequence of my actions."
Scott had said: "He showed a total lack of respect for his team-mates, for me and most importantly the supporters. Even if we had only 12 or 13 available, he won't appear again."
Huddersfield manager Lee Clark revealed he had spoken to Scott since the incident but the conversation would remain private.
