Goals from Dean Morgan either side of Grant's 42nd-minute dismissal for a dangerous tackle on Andrew Wright put the Chairboys in first control.

But after pulling a goal back just before the hour through Richard Brodie, Redshaw struck late to salvage a point for the Shrimps.

"I think it was a good result," said Bentley. "I've got to be honest, up until the sending off it was probably the worst we've played all season.

"I think everything about our play - defending, anticipation, communication, our passing, our willingness, our desire, our clearances - everything was poor about our play.

"If it was 11 versus 11 I think Wycombe would have stuffed us because we weren't at the races.

"But the 10 men played into our hands - we had the advantage, we had the possession, but in Dean Morgan they always have a threat.

"He scored two great goals for them. I've played against him, I've seen him play and it was probably the best performance I've seen from a League Two player this season.

"While he was on the pitch he was always a threat and he proved that with the two goals."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
