'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bellamy A Great Weapon

Mark Hughes says Bellamy is looking sharp in training and believes Blackburn have yet to see the best of the striker. Bellamy has six goals in just seven games despite his Ewood Park career getting off to a slow start due to injuries.

The Rover's boss said: 'Craig still hasn't had that many games so it's a case of getting more matches under his belt. But we see him day in, day out in training and he looks really sharp at the moment. He's missed a lot of power work, which he does independently of the rest of the group, so he wants to get back to doing that and we'll reap the benefits. He's a conscientious professional who does the best he can to get himself in the best possible shape on the pitch, so he's still building up to that level but he's not far away now.'

Hughes believes the Welsh international is 'a great weapon to have'. He also dismisses all talk of the player being a trouble maker: 'Craig has been great since he came here. He is a great professional, wants to work hard, wants to have an effect on things. What he does give us, certainly in the last period of games, is a threat in behind. When teams are trying to chase games and trying to get back into matches against us, the threat of Craig Bellamy breaking away is always there, and is a great weapon to have.'
