Crystal Palace ace Neil Danns has apologised to the club's fans for his sending off against West Brom.

Danns was sent off for aiming a headbutt at West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans during his side's 1-1 draw on Monday night.

It means the influential midfielder will miss Sunday's make-or-break relegation showdown with Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday and Danns feels he has let the Palace fans down by his actions.

"I'm so sorry for what I've done. I've never done anything like this before. It was a pure heat-of-the-moment thing," said Danns.

"There was a lot of pressure on because of the relegation fight. But there is no excuse. I'm really sorry and I apologise to Graham Dorrans and our fans. I feel I've let them down."
