Benni McCarthy, Blackburn Rovers' match winning hero in Wednesday's victory over Arsenal fully understands Mark Hughes decision not to start him and doesn't blame him at all.
Obviously McCarthy was disappointed to start his second successive Rovers match on the bench and had expected to return. But after coming on to score with a stunning strike to see us to a 1-0 victory over Arsenal in our FA Cup fifth round replay to set up a tie with local rivals Manchester City in the Quarter Finals he understands why Sparky again left him out. He told Sky Sports:
"The gaffer said he was going to give me some rest.
"I thought maybe Portsmouth, and maybe I'll be back against Arsenal, but he felt he couldn't change a winning team. I can't blame him for that.
"The lads did well so far and when I get my chance, you've just got to show it.
"You never know when you will get the chance, so when you get it, you've got to be ready.
"It's one of those moments - you come off the bench and you've got better fresh legs and produce some magic like that.
"I'm thrilled we managed to go through and we knocked out probably the best team in the Premier League."
Benni has been in need of some rest so hopefully this, and his stunning goal will see him fully rejuvenated and firing on all cylinders for the remainder of the season and keep our FA Cup run going; the Semi Finals at least are now a real possibility but lets not forget we have a massive game with local rivals Bolton Wanderers at the weekend first...
