Cheltenham captain Alan Bennett has revealed Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini apologised for the penalty given in their 5-1 FA Cup win. The Robins captain was penalised by the referee for climbing over Fellaini as he tried to head away a cross.
"Fellaini at the end apologised to me, he said 'sorry about the penalty', the 31-year-old told BBC Gloucestershire.
"I said to the ref at least I got one apology, he said it was stonewall. I don't know what game he was watching."
The crucial penalty, awarded by referee Kevin Friend was converted and came with Cheltenham already trailing.
"It's a standard League Two challenge for me, and he's [the referee] trying to make friends I think, I don't know what he's doing," Bennett continued.
"He was calling them all by nicknames and referring to us by numbers, maybe he got carried away with the situation."
