Fulham boss Martin Jol admits Steve Sidwell must be more careful with his tackling.

Sidwell received the first red card of his career against QPR on April 1 — only to be dismissed again for his tackle on Mikel Arteta in defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

Jol said: “I had the same thing with Frimpong.

“Stay on your feet, don’t sell yourself — then there’s no problem. But Sidwell always wants to win the ball.

“He knew because he did the same three weeks ago and was suspended for three matches.” .
