Rob 'Trigger' Jones has apologised for his "Moment of madness" in Wednesday's League Cup meeting with Sunderland.
"It won't happen again," said the repentant England star. Jones added: "I thought it was a bad tackle by Smith on Barnes. The whistle had already gone and the guy must have heard it but still went through. I went over to tell him what I thought but before I got to him he fell on the ground and started holding his ankle. What really wound me up was the player who came in behind me and kicked me, I just lost my head and waded into him. I know you shouldn't react like that whatever the provocation. I'm not known for having a short fuse but I certainly had one that night."
Jones will get a three match ban and a club fine - anything up to £5,000 - but it shouldn't affect his eligibilty for the Brondby UEFA Cup tie as FA bans don't carry on into European competitions.
