Gareth Barry will miss our FA Cup clash against Everton after Gordon Bennett decided to book him for celebrating Gabby's goal at the end of todays match.
Maybe our Captain forgot it's now considered a criminal offence to be happy at a teammate scoring a goal, I don't know.
All I do know is when it comes to Steve Bennett there's probably a reason I use the name Gordon.
The booking means Barry has picked up five for the season and must serve an automatic one match ban.
We also have injury concerns after the Blackburn match, which Martin O'Neill also talked about on the official site.
'Gareth was booked so he'll be a big miss next weekend.
'He has been inspirational. I thought he had gone that first week in August. I thought he was definitely on his way.
'I would have given you big odds on him playing for us now at this stage in the season. But I am delighted he is. He has been brilliant.'
As for our injury concerns, Cuellar was withdrawn at halftime as a precautionary measure after complaining of a tight hamstring and it appears that Heskey has picked up an achilles tendon injury during the second half. This obviously calls into question Heskey's England call up.
'Carlos has come back from injury and he has played a lot of games quickly and his hamstrings were very, very tight at half-time.
'We couldn't decide whether he had done some damage or whether it was just tightness so I thought it was best to just leave it and bring Craig on.
'Emile has got a bit of an achilles tendon problem. It was getting worse the longer the game was going on so I brought him off.
'I'm not sure how he is. I am hoping he will come through. I saw him smiling after the match but maybe that was just because we had won. We'll see.'
