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But despite being withdrawn at half time, Benji insists that he is in good shape.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

Let see how it could be with him and Kalinic.....cheers

I hope so. I too would like to see him play up front with Niko!

There is flexibility with our forward line if Big Sam would drop his stance and have a look at it...
Mikey Delap
I think when he broke his duck for pompey he went on a nice run and knocked quite a few in

'We didn't take our chances and against a team like Chelsea they will punish you.' - pop at jason roberts?

Haha I was thinking that LH. Gotta say I thought Benjani did (surprisingly) well in those 45 mins. More of the same please!
fransavarese
i think he could well prove to be a nice freebie
glen9mullan
he's certainly in form right now...don't forget he single-handedly created our goal at liverpool too.
DommyWalker
Well if we play the ball on the floor like we did 1st 45 mins we should be able to start gettin some goals in the back of the net!

Where does this leave Niko now though???
Mikey Delap
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
