BEN Mee said James Tarkowski is 'disappointed' to have been handed a three-match ban for his elbow on Brighton striker Glenn Murray.

The incident was missed by the match officials but picked up by the television cameras, which led to Tarkowski being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association earlier this week.

Mee believes players know they can't step out of line know, even if the referee has his back turned, with the amount of cameras watching the action and the endless scrutiny of Premier League games in the media.

"The scrutiny is massive and the amount of times things get replayed you know it's going to come back and bite you if you do step out of line," the Clarets skipper said.

"So you're definitely aware of it you've just got to keep your head and be aware of your actions."

Mee insists his centre back partner will improve for his momentary 'misjudgement' as he faces up to missing the Christmas fixtures against Tottenham, Manchester United and Huddersfield, before returning for the New Year's Day clash with Liverpool.

"It's unfortunate, you can't get away with anything with the cameras around," he said.

"He's disappointed, obviously, but it's one of those things just in the heat of the moment and he'll improve from it, making a little bit of a misjudgement and he'll learn from it."
