Dale Bennett: Forest Green win appeal against red card

Dale Bennett

Forest Green Rovers have successfully overturned defender Dale Bennett's sending off in Tuesday's 5-2 Conference Premier defeat by Welling.

The 23-year-old was adjudged to have brought down midfielder Lee Clarke in the box and the referee awarded a penalty before producing a red card.

The Football Association upheld Rovers' appeal and Bennett's one-game suspension has been withdrawn.

He will now be available for selection for Saturday's game with Cambridge.
