Norwich City’s on loan defender James Husband must learn from his red card rush of blood warned Blackpool chief Simon Grayson.
Husband was dismissed for a flying lunge on Southend defender Elvis Bwomono in the Tangerines' 3-1 weekend win that moved them top of League One.
Husband, who joined Blackpool on a season long loan for the final 12 months of his Carrow Road deal, will now be suspended for three games after his reckless challenge.
"My view now is no different to what I thought at the time," Grayson told the Blackpool Gazette.
"As I said after the game on Saturday, regardless of whether it's a good tackle or a bad tackle, James didn't need to put himself in that position with the officials.

"We watched it on the bus coming back and the lads were cringing every time it came on.
"It was a complete lack of professionalism from James, which I didn't really expect from someone like him.

"We were cruising at 3-0 and it made it a little bit more uncomfortable than we would have liked it to have been for the last half an hour.
"We're going to lose a good player who has settled in really quickly for three games.
"He's disappointed and he's apologised, all I'd say is you learn from those experiences whether it's you or someone else has been involved in."
Husband is now suspended for Blackpool's Carabao Cup first round tie against Macclesfield Town on Tuesday.
"We've got flexibility within the group," said Grayson. "We've got Nathan Shaw who has done well pre-season, he can potentially play that side.
"We've got other players who are adaptable as well and that's what we're going to need throughout the course of the year."
