Torquay United striker Tyrone Marsh has apologised after being sent off for pushing his team-mate on Saturday.

Marsh was sent off after an altercation with Dan Butler in the 1-1 draw at Altrincham, prompting manager Kevin Nicholson to urge Marsh to "grow up".

"After looking back on the incident that led to my sending off on Saturday, I realise how wrong I was to act in this way," Marsh said in a statement.

"I am fortunate that my actions did not cost us the game."

The red card resulted in a three-match ban for Marsh, who has scored in each of the club's last three games.

"I know that I let the team down and would like to apologise to all the people associated with Torquay United FC, the board of directors, staff, the gaffer, team-mates and, of course, the supporters of the team," Marsh added.

"I would especially like to apologise to the supporters who made the trip to the game and to my team-mate Dan Butler.

"This was totally out of character and the first time I have been involved in an incident like this.

"I accept my punishment of a three-game ban and promise all associated with the club that I will return from my suspension, after I have regained my fitness and do what I am best at, scoring the goals that will hopefully push us up the league table."
