Harry Arter Gives His Side Of Incident That Saw Jonathan Hogg Sent Off

On loan at Cardiff City from Bournemouth, Harry Arter has become embroiled in a dispute with Jonathan Hogg.

The Huddersfield Town player was sent off for headbutting Arter in the side’s nil-all draw at the John Smith’s Stadium.

A push with both hands and head sent the Irishman tumbling in the box, with Arter receiving a booking for his part in the fracas.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the final whistle, Arter admitted fault in getting involved in the incident, but maintained that he was potentially denied penalties in both halves.

“It was a heat of the battle, you sometimes get lost in that moment,” the midfielder admitted.

“I felt there was potentially a penalty that could have been given against me in the first half and again in the second half, I tried to let the referee know about that and their lad did not like that.”

If the sending off is not rescinded, Hogg will miss Huddersfield Town’s next three games. The Terriers have just one point from their opening three league matches, while promoted side Cardiff have two points thus far, with the teams at 18th and 14th in the table respectively.
