I’m ok says Bennett after head injury scare in cup tie

Julian Bennett says he is ok after being stretchered off during Wednesday’s FA Cup third round win over West Ham.

Bennett clashed heads with team-mate Clinton Morrison during the second half, receiving lengthy on-field treatment and then being carried off, leading to 11 minutes of injury time.

However Bennett tweeted on Sunday evening: ‘I’m all good everyone. Just had seven stitches in my lip and all clear on my head scan. UTO’.

Gary Megson said of Wednesday’s win: “I thought it was a good performance. Not the best we have played this season but still a good performance.”

He had particular praise for matchwinner Chris O’Grady and keeper Nicky Weaver, who saved a penalty, saying: “I thought Chris was terrific today. I’ve been really pleased with his perfomances recently, he just needed a goal and today he got it.

“Nicky produced a great save from the penalty.”
