When it was announced Redshaw, 22, needed a hip operation this summer and the Shrimps would be without their top scorer from last season until Christmas, the naysayers suggested those at the Globe Arena could be in for a difficult campaign.

However, Bentley's team are now fifth in the table, just one point away from the automatic promotion places and three off current leaders Fleetwood.

Redshaw made an ahead-of-schedule return last weekend and is happy not to rush his comeback given how his team-mates are currently performing.

Speaking after being named the League Two Player of the Year at the Northwest Football Awards, Redshaw said: "They don't really need me at the minute! They're on fire, they've been great this season.

"There's been a lot of different goal-scorers and they're doing really well."

The club rewarded boss Bentley with a new deal in October and Redshaw was quick to praise his manager for the work he does with very limited resources.

"I think he's the right man for this club," Redshaw added.

"I think this is maybe his 10th or 11th season so he knows the club inside out. He's definitely the right man for the job."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
