Simon Gillett: Staying put at Ashton Gate

The Nottingham Forest midfielder joined the Robins on loan in November and has made nine appearances - prompting Steve Cotterill to extend his stay with the club.

"We've spoken to Nottingham Forest and they've agreed that we can extend the deal for the rest of the campaign," he told the club's official website.

"Central midfield is where we feel we are a little light and actually somewhere we'd like to strengthen.

"Simon's a great professional and a tidy, intelligent footballer. He reads and understands the game well."

Gillett's current deal doesn't expire until January 28 but the midfielder remains unavailable in the FA Cup and will miss their FA Cup third-round replay with Watford.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
