Fit and waiting to play - 30/04/2004

Fit and waiting to play
   Steve Banks
   Stoke City
   Coventry City

I'm fully fit, probably fitter than I've been all season, and now I'm just waiting to get back into the team. Steve Banks has come in when I was injured and he's done well, he's an experienced keeper and nice bloke. I'm still learning and it's good to be working alongside an older head - but I'm after my place back.

With two games left I know we aren't safe and we must get a point or three against Coventry on Saturday. They've had a strange season but have finshed relatively strongly and we'll have to fight for the points. We then face a trip to Stoke who, other than pride, have little to play for. You'd hope for atleast a point at the Brittania Stadium and with that point, we should be safe in Div One.

With only two games left this season I don't think the gaffer will make any unforced changes to the team. There's a fair amount of uncertainty around at present but all I can do is keep plugging away and wait for my chance. I believe in my own ability and I'm looking forward to a strong pre-season and selection for first team football come August.

I'd like to thank the fans for their support, It's great to hear from them - they pay to watch us and they know what I can do.
