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

More to come from Benjani, says, er, Benjani

Rovers striker Benjani has promised the Rovers fans that there is more to come from him, despite picking up a little niggle after 45 minutes at the weekend.

The Zimbabwean was impressive in the lone striker role and bagged his first Blackburn goal with a composed header in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

But despite being withdrawn at half time, Benji insists that he is in good shape.

Benjani spoke to Rovers TV and said - 'The gaffer was just cautious and I'm definitely okay for the next match.

'I'm starting to feel my fitness is coming back and let's hope I play more in the future. I'm almost there I just need more playing time.'

Benjani's breaking of his duck is something of a relief for him after his summer move but would rather he didn't score if it meant the team winning.

Benjani continued - 'It was a big relief - let's hope I can score more for Blackburn now - but it is not so nice if you score and the team lose.

'We didn't take our chances and against a team like Chelsea they will punish you.'

I am glad to see him off the mark, he has looked good enough to me so far, despite many peoples fears.

There is flexibility with our forward line if Big Sam would drop his stance and have a look at it...

I think when he broke his duck for pompey he went on a nice run and knocked quite a few in

Haha I was thinking that LH. Gotta say I thought Benjani did (surprisingly) well in those 45 mins. More of the same please!

Niko is the man, Can't help thinking he has been getting the short straw, everytime he is up front its on his own and his hold up play is excellent, I think Niko needs a strike partner and 4-4-2 must be the platform to getting us up the table
