Megson pleased by Bennett capture

The 21-year-old defender is set for an immediate debut against Oldham at the weekend.

Reds boss Gary Megson told the club website: "I'm really pleased to have signed Julian.

"He's a player that we have tracked for some time - in fact it first started when I was manager at West Brom and he got in the side as a young kid at Walsall.

"I've followed him since then and I'm delighted to have got him in."
