Martin Olsson said sorry to his team-mates after Norwich City endured a nightmare start to their Championship return with defeat at League One champions Wolves.
Dave Edwards’ header – scored a matter of moments after Olsson’s second yellow card – gave the buoyant hosts all three points on their second-tier return, while manager Neil Adams was left to digest a City performance too much in the likeness of what sent Norwich out of the Premier League in the first place.
Olsson now misses Saturday’s at home to Watford – but may be in for more punishment, if the FA deem his push on referee Simon Hooper at the time of his dismissal worthy of action.
“It’s just one of those things,” said Bradley Johnson. “Everyone gets sent off now and again. Everyone’s going to say the sending off cost us the game, but before that we felt comfortable and even after the red card we felt comfortable, and we had the chances to score.
“He’s apologised to us, he’s a top professional and he works his socks off for the team. So he’s disappointed, as we all are, with the result.”
