Blackburn Rovers Assistant manager Ray Mathias has backed Vince Grella and Stephen Warnock to shine in the heart of the Rovers midfield.
One of sasman's favourites Grella signed for Rovers in the summer, and after injury returned to the side in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough where he played alongside converted left-back Stephen Warnock. Mathias thinks that they can be up their with the best in the Premier League.
Mathias told the Lancashire Telegraph: "If you look at Vince and Stevie Warnock in the first half, there is no one better in there in this division.
"They were absolutely outstanding. We knocked the ball about in there and that is what it is all about.
"I thought Vince did very, very well. He has overcome the injury that he had, which was a nasty one, and he lasted the 90 minutes and put in a good performance.
"Vince played a big part in there. He has a massive part to play in shielding the defenders and also making play."
Warnock is a left-back by trade, and has previously played in left-midfield during his Liverpool days but a central role is something new to him, but he is doing this well. So well in fact that it's hard to move him back!!!
Mathias added: "I think Stevie Warnock is making it difficult for us to put him back in his usual position.
"We moved him back to left back late on but it was purely to fit people in.
"It was a shame bringing him out of midfield because he was doing ever so well in there."
