Matty On Target Again.....

Matty On Target Again.....

Well he may not be there in terms of ability just yet but if he keeps on scoring both at club level and at Under 21 level... how long can Steve 'I only pick from fashionable clubs' McClaren ignore him?

Yet again last night he showed his predator instinct to put England into the lead from 12 yards and generally had a terrific game next to the impressive Gabriel Agbonlahor from Aston Villa.

He has attributes which McClaren needs, pace, power, heading ability, ability to run the channels, and a knack of being in the right place at the right time.

He may not have enough experience to stake a regular place right now but if he keeps playing how he is doing then sooner or later a call up will come along.

He will leave clueless Steve with no choice.

It most certainly is 1-1, game on lol!
Wow, I'm not used to seeing Rovers being given credit, some of it still wound me up a little but on the whole it was very complimentary wasn't it. Derbs WON'T go anywhere though will he, he's Rovers through and through, so unless he has no other option he'll go nowhere will he.
