IT WAS a big game against Peterborough on Wednesday and, as I’ve been asked to do, I wanted to set the tone early and be physical.
I went in for a hit, which in my mind, was a routine hit that I would have done in any game, but I’ve been tossed out for it, which was really frustrating.
The Phantoms player was bleeding afterwards and I think that might be why they decided that it was an ejection. I don’t know if he split his eye on my shoulder or something else.
It’s hard because it definitely wasn’t a dirty hit but I’ve been tossed out for it.
I haven’t seen the video yet though and sometimes you watch things back and think differently about them.
I don’t regret the hit at all because it’s one that I’d always make but when I had to leave and then watch the game unfold, and the guys have lost, I found that tough because I felt like I was responsible because I wasn’t there to help the team.
I haven’t heard anything yet and I’m not worried that I’m going to get suspended for a game or more because of this.
I was tossed out in a game against Guildford in December and that’s not going to help me. I really hope that I don’t end up being suspended for the next few weeks.
Aaron (Nell) will probably tell me what’s going to happen once he’s heard from the league but it will be really frustrating if I can’t help the team.
We’re on a really important stretch of games going in to the play-offs and it’s a time where you want everyone firing, so it’s not going to help if I can’t play for a few games.
Right now, we spend a lot of time looking at the table.
We’re in seventh and the teams above us are within our grasp, so we’ve got a chance to move into fifth or sixth and get a more favourable draw in the play-offs.
We want to try and win more games than we lose, and hopefully that should get us there.
We thought that Wednesday was a game that we could win but that didn’t happen, so we’ve got to try and get some wins in the next games.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to play and make amends.
