Essendon star Mark McVeigh will miss Friday nights blockbuster against Carlton after accepting a one week suspension handed to him by the match review panel for striking Demons defender Jared Rivers during the third quarter of last Fridays clash against Melbourne.

Speaking on Channel 9’s Sunday Footy Show McVeigh admitted he let his team down with a moment of madness despite being up by 10 goals at the time.

“I’m most disappointed about letting my team-mates down and the supporters because at this time I’ve missed a fair bit of footy through injury,” he said.

“I’ve missed five to six weeks of football and I’ve let the side down and the supporters of the club… it’s not good enough.”

McVeigh faced a two match ban although his early guilty plea reduced it to one.

Cameron Ling of Geelong can accept a reprimand and 70.31 points towards his future record with an early plea for striking Docker Nick Suban.
