The Blackburn Rovers strike partnership of Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts is REALLY starting to click, and both are enjoying it BIG time!
After a goal apiece in the weekend victory over Newcastle United (a victory that ultimately costs Glenn Roeder his job, well it didn't, but proved the last straw) they took the partnerships tally to eight goals in five matches between then.
McCarthy notched his 22nd goal of the season in the first half, Roberts' second half effort was his 5th (in as many games to boot) in what has been an injury-ravaged season of frustration. Roberts has admitted to this frustration but is VERY much enjoying the partnership with McCarthy, even admitting they should have scored more goals!
Speaking on the official Blackburn website, Roberts said:
"I think we should have scored more goals, we really didn't take enough of our chances.
"But I can't complain, it would be greedy but we should have scored more goals really.
"The positive is that we keep creating chances and we are confident that we'll put them away. We'll miss some but you can't be concerned with that, we are creating a hatful of chances each game now and that is the hallmark of a good side."
"We enjoyed playing alongside each other in the summer during the pre-season time and I think now we are starting to replicate that form.
"There isn't much you can do with injuries but I'm just glad to be back playing and I'm really enjoying playing with Benni."
Meanwhile Benni McCarthy added:
"I'm ecstatic, if there is anybody that is happy then it should be me because I've always said that I think we've got a Yorke and Cole thing going.
"They are completely different from us but we are good friends on and off the pitch, we get along so well and we've both got completely different qualities that we can put into a game, we can help each other, and just our understanding and our friendship is fantastic.
"Jason has shown a lot of determination and sheer strength, and he's done fantastic, worked hard and has scored goals.
"He's good for me, very very good."
Doesn't sound much like the words of a man planning on going anywhere this summer does it…
