Merson furious with Bennett ban
Walsall boss Paul Merson slated Julian Bennett after the defender picked up his fifth booking of the season for a minor fracas against Blackpool.

Bennett, 20, will now be banned for the Boxing Day trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

Merson told the club's website: "He got booked for being the hard-man - there was no need as he wasn't even involved.

"If it was a tackle with someone going through and he put him in the stand, then fair enough, but he had to step in and now he's put us in trouble."
