Coventry City midfielder Aron Gunnarsson is happy to be back playing after his ban and although it was for three games, he was sidelined for just a week because the games came thick and fast in the holiday period.
"I am very pleased to be back because I had been watching the games from the stands and they dragged on for ages, so it is good to be back to try to help the team," he admitted to the CT.
Gunnarsson, who was one of City's better players against Barnsley, received a straight red card, the first one of his career, for a late tackle on Norwich's Henri Lansbury.
"I saw my tackle on the TV the same evening after the game and I thought it looked worse on the replay so I could understand why the gaffer didn't appeal, but in the moment it happened I never thought it would be a red card. I didn't mean any harm but the ref gets a split second to decide so you can't really blame them."
"I think Marlon King's was quite similar to mine and he is now out for three games which is a blow because he is an important player for us and great asset to the team."
