Danny Williams is set to miss some time for Reading FC after engaging in a on-field scuffle with his captain earlier this week.
On Friday, Reading announced Williams and teammate Paul McShane have accepted three-match bans from the English Football Association for their incident in Tuesday’s loss to Middlesbrough. The pair will miss out on matches against Leeds United, Hull City and Queens Park Rangers as a result of their suspensions.
“I would like to say sorry to the manager, my teammates, the club and most importantly all of our supporters for a heat of the moment incident that happened late in the game on Tuesday night,” Williams said.
“Everyone who sees me on the pitch will know I am a man who plays his football with pride and passion and who will do everything he can to win three points for his team. But on this occasion, this wasn’t the right reaction and although Macca and I apologized to each other after the final whistle, we both know we have let down our fans.”
With the season’s final stretch coming, Reading sits firmly in the middle of the table in the 14th position. Williams has appeared in 33 games this season, netting five goals.
