Midfielder Karl Henry has apologised to Wolves manager Mick McCarthy, players and the club's supporters for the "stupid mistake" which led to his sending off against Aston Villa at the weekend.

Former skipper Henry was given a straight red card 15 minutes from time with the score 2-2 after kicking out at Villa winger Marc Albrighton. He acknowledges his error "cost" Wolves the game as a late Robbie Keane goal earned Villa a 3-2 success at Molineux.

Henry, who now faces a three-game ban, said: "It was frustrating as I was trying to get to the ball and Albrighton was holding on to my leg. I was trying to get to the ball and I just kicked out in frustration to try and get away. As soon as I did it, I thought 'what have I done' because you can't react like that on a football pitch."
