Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm concedes that he deserved to be shown a red card during Sunday's derby defeat at Cardiff City in the Premier League.

Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm has admitted that he deserved to be sent off during Sunday's derby defeat at Cardiff City in the Premier League.

The Dutchman was shown a straight red card by referee Mike Dean after bringing down Fraizer Campbell in the final moments at the Cardiff City Stadium.

"I touched the ball first but the referee has a fraction of a second and my leg was high and I touched Campbell as well," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying.

"It wasn't my intention to kick him, but once the referee has made that decision there's nothing I can do. He has to make those decisions so I can't complain.

"I was the last man because everyone was forward so I had come up to defend a big area. It was a shame, but it didn't make a difference in the end."

Swansea continue their Europa League campaign on Thursday when they make the trip to Russia to face Kuban Krasnodar.
