Kyle Bennett wants Rovers to follow the marker they laid down against MK Dons at Bradford City today.

The 24-year-old winger hopes to retain his place in the side at Valley Parade, where he spent three months on loan last season.

And he has called on his teammates to replicate the tenacity they displayed last weekend in this afternoon’s Yorkshire derby.

“We were happy with the clean sheet we got last weekend,” said Bennett.

“We’ve been conceding too many goals, both at home and away, so to stop the goals going in was perfect.

“Butts [Andy Butler] has been a big help since he came in.

“But as a team we showed [against MK Dons] that we’ve got passion and we are together. Everyone was sticking their foot in.

“Everyone was getting round each other and making tackles in midfield.

“Paul Keegan and Richie Wellens were up against a three in midfield and I thought they were tremendous,” he added.

“Harry [Forrester] was tucking in doing his job too, so I thought the energy in midfield was excellent.

“As a midfield four, and as a back four and the front two as well, the units were very good - and that’s something we’ve got to build on at Bradford.”

Bennett’s starting spot is under threat from James Coppinger, who returned to training on Thursday.
