Wigan captain Antolin Alcaraz has issued an apology on the club's website for the spitting incident that has landed him a three-match ban.

The Paraguay international was caught by television cameras spitting at Wolves defender Richard Stearman towards the end of the Latics' 3-1 Barclays Premier League defeat at Molineux on Sunday and this week accepted a misconduct charge from the Football Association, resulting in the suspension.

A statement from Alcaraz on www.wiganlatics.co.uk read: "I would like to apologise for my actions following the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers last Sunday. I apologise to anyone connected to our football club for the offence and upset that my actions have caused. I reacted wrongly after being provoked but I never meant to spit on an opposing player."
