Elliott Hewitt admits he is disappointed in himself after picking up a fifth yellow card of the season in Notts County's 1-1 draw at Stevenage.
The Welshman was booked in the first half after remonstrating with the referee following a foul on Terry Hawkridge in midfield which preceded a Harry Beautyman effort on the Magpies goal.
The caution means Hewitt will miss the next game, against Cheltenham Town at Meadow Lane.
“I was gutted to get a fifth yellow and it was a bit stupid from me,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“I thought it was a bad challenge from one of their players. I turned around and asked for a free-kick but the referee booked me.
“I am very disappointed on my behalf because I wasn’t the only who did it in the game either. But it was me who picked up the yellow and that’s football.”
