Morecambe manager Jim Bentley has received a two-match touchline ban after he was sent off in their 2-1 home defeat by Cheltenham.

The 40-year-old was sent to the stands after his reaction to Shrimps midfielder Alex Kenyon being shown a red card.

Bentley attended a Wembley hearing and was fined, and ordered to pay costs.

He will now be forced to watch games against Notts County and Carlisle from the stands.
