Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons has admitted he needs to improve his temperament but says he will not have a moment of madness like he did in the Crawley Town game.
The Magpies stopper, who has penned a new two-year contract, lashed out at Mark Connolly near the end of that game in January.
Fitzsimons picked up a red card and gave the visitors a match-winning penalty as Kevin Nolan’s side lost 2-1, before being hit with a three-match ban and losing his first-team place to Adam Collin.
“I’d say one of the things I need to improve is my temperament, hence the kick up the backside after the Crawley game,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“That won’t be happening again I can be sure of that.
“At the time I just saw red. It was a case of acting before I thought.
“I am not usually like that, but everybody has moments like it.
“Unfortunately, that was my moment there. It cost me my place in my team and it was a hard lesson to learn.”
