We are still waiting for confirmation of the seriousness of the leg injury suffered by Jonathan Smith at the Hive this afternoon.

Smith was caught by an awful challenge by Jon Nurse that saw the Barnet player shown a straight red card.

However, whilst we wait for news to hear whether Smith will play again this season, Nurse has done the decent thing and apologised for the challenge, remarking to the media,

‘I really didn’t mean to hurt the lad, I caught him very badly and it was a poor challenge. I’m very sorry and I apologise to Jonathan, the rest of the Luton Town players, John Still and the Luton Town supporters. I wish him a speedy recovery.’

It`s also suggested that an inconsolable Nurse visited the Luton dressing room, after the match, to apologise for the challenge.

Unfortunately that doesn`t help Smith but at least the offender has done the decent thing and that is to be admired.
