Bennett: Eyeing full fitness

The 1-1 draw at the County Ground marked the 22-year-old's comeback from a six-week lay-off with a knee ligament injury, which came two weeks ahead of schedule.

Bennett, who revealed he had been receiving painkilling injections on his troublesome knee in the run up to the game, insists he will be fully fit when Coventry visit the Keepmoat this weekend.

"I will have had a full weeks' training by the time we play them on Saturday so I should be there or thereabouts by then," he told The Sheffield Star.

"I had only trained twice with the team, Thursday and Friday, after six weeks out with a knee ligament injury so I was probably only 90 per cent fit against Swindon," he said. "I'd also had a couple of injections in the joint during the week.

"I thought I did okay on Saturday, especially early on, but I was probably ready to come off when the manager substituted me just before the hour mark.

"But it was good to be back because it has been frustrating being out as I like to play every game that I can and help out the team."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
