Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer thought he was hard done by after getting sent off at Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
Dyer received his first straight red card of his career after a high tackle on his former Swansea team-mate Jordi Gomez.
Whilst he is disappointed to be sidelined for the next three games, starting with Sunday's game at home against league leaders Manchester City, he is determined to win his place back in the team on his return.
Dyer told the Official Site:
'It is really disappointing to miss out on the next three matches,'
'They are massive games and I would have loved to have played a part in them.
'It will be frustrating watching the games and not being able to do anything about it, but I know we have the quality to get good results.
'I'll be raring to go when we visit White Hart Lane, and I'll work as hard as possible to get back into the team.'
Talking about the tackle, Dyer added:
'I went for the ball - I'm certainly not a malicious player. I have never received a straight red card in my career.
'I asked him (Marriner) what it was for but he just told me to get off the pitch.
'There was minimal contact (with Gomez). It was a yellow card at best, in my opinion. It was not worthy of a straight red. Everyone I have spoken to - including people outside of the club - feels the same way.'
Dyer said what an important win it was at Wigan:
'I was really enjoying the game up until the red card,'
'We worked on getting behind their defence and we managed to do that on a few occasions.
'We were pushing them back as well so they were forced onto the backfoot.
'Gylfi got the first goal with a superb strike and his second goal was another brilliant goal.
'He has got that quality on the ball and he plays in the hole really well.
'He can see the runs you are making and can pluck you out with a brilliant pass - as you saw in the first half when he sent me in on goal.
'Overall it was a big win for us. The sending-off was the only disappointment.'
