'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Heaping The Praise

Score the goals and you're bound to gain the headlines aren't you?

Especially if you score the goals, taking the chances, when you are put in a position that you want to be playing in.

Jonathan Franks wants to be seen as a central striker and Colin Cooper gave him his chance to do this at the weekend and he repaid him by scoring not once, but twice as he firstly got us back into the game at Cheltenham and then secured us a point in the 2-2 draw.

Franks could have actually had a hat-trick, had he not been denied by a fine save by Cheltenham's 'keeper.

Cooper said: 'We got back into the game by Franksie having a gamble

'I thought he really enjoyed his chance through the middle, because that is where he wants to play, he took his chances nicely.

'The goalkeeper made an excellent save for one, he could have comfortably had a hat-trick and that's really good. Luke (James) has taken a few batterings and Franksie has been champing at the bit.'

You can't do much more than Franks did on Saturday can you?

I'd expect that these goals have brought him another chance to play where he wants to in our next game....
