|Elbow on Huddersfield Town's Christopher Schindler was accident says Sam Vokes
| agent sbobet Burnley striker Sam Vokes has insisted his elbow on Christopher Schindler was entirely accidental. The incident occurred during the second half of the 1-1 draw between Burnley and the Town at Turf Moor and Schindler revealed afterwards that Vokes had apologised to him. The two players, the goalscorers in the match, jumped together for a ball in the Huddersfield penalty area and Vokes caught Schindler with the point of a swinging elbow.
Schindler put his body on the line again moments later, blocking a shot with his face, before going down and requiring several minutes of treatment. Medics eventually stopped the bleeding from two cuts, one on the bridge of his nose and one under his right eye. He was able to finish the game after a change of shirt. Town boss David Wagner called the challenge "ugly" in his post-match press conference but stopped short of accusing Vokes of any deliberate action.
Welshman Vokes said: "I was backing in and he happened to be there and I caught him with a stray elbow. agent sbobet "I apologised to him afterwards, it was nothing intentional. It was just one of those things where you're up against the centre-half. I've had plenty of them from the other side. "Obviously when you have an opponent lying down for that amount of time, no one wants to see that. I was glad to see him return back to the pitch."
Schindler, who netted his first Premier League goal, accepted Vokes' apology and protestations of innocence. Town remain without a Premier League victory this season agent sbobet but their third draw was enough to lift them off the bottom of the table, and they were unfortunate not to take more than a point after dominating the game.
