Luton’s Benson loses appeal

Date published: Thursday 16th April 2015 4:37

Benson was shown a straight red card by referee Darren Sheldrake against his former club Dagenham last weekend for a clumsy, high challenge on Ian Gayle.

The Hatters felt they could get the dismissal overturned but the Football Association has upheld the decision.

Benson’s ban will begin on Saturday when Luton host Hartlepool at Kenilworth Road and the 35-year-old will also miss the remaining two League Two fixtures against Southend and Stevenage, meaning he will only be eligible to play again this season should John Still’s side reach the play-offs.
