Two on the bounce...let's make it three
Not where I like to be!
   Trevor Benjamin
   West Ham United
   Stoke City
   Rotherham United

I don’t want to tempt fate, but with two wins on the bounce, and two clean sheets on the bounce - I’d love to add to both those records tomorrow. Rotherham aren’t having the best of times at present, but they’ve a good manager in Ronnie Moore and they could be a bit of a wounded animal – we’ll respect them but at the same time also look to leave South Yorkshire with three points.

The gaffer’s brought in two loan signings in Trevor Benjamin and Wayne Brown – both look to be decent acquisitions for the club. Trevor had a great time at Cambridge but then hasn’t had much of a look in at Leicester. Wayne’s another lad with Premiership experience and he’s a good organiser in the defence – something that’s always appreciated by keepers!!

After conceding those eight goals in Italy, and then five against Cardiff it’s such a relief to keep the two clean sheets. Keeping West Ham out was particularly pleasing as to be honest, I think they’re a Premiership club playing in the first division. It’s also nice for the fans as it’s probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest game of the season at the Priestfield. To be honest though, three points are three points and it was just as important to beat Stoke. But those two results are now behind us, now we’ve to focus on Rotherham…
