3-1 v Stoke City (h) 27th October 2010

His air shot was the 'highlight' of a rather dismal performance.

(Replaced Barrera, 69 mins) Came on to replace Piquionne. Apparently.

1-0 v Oxford United (h) 24th August 2010
by Staff Writer No.2

(Replaced Sears, 78 mins) Actually did ok, I thought. Won a free kick just outside the box; good link up play.

1-3 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 21st August 2010
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Dyer, 77 mins) Still a few lbs to go Benni. Nice lob that led to the second penalty. Keep working on that treadmill.

0-1 v Stoke City (h) 27th March 2010

(Replaced Mido, 84 mins) Had one very good chance that he just failed to convert. Still looking less than 100 per cent.

1-3 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) 23rd March 2010
by Rob Chapman

Looked unfit and, bar the odd nice lay-off, pretty ineffectual in the first half. Completely AWOL in the second half until being unceremoniously hauled-off.

1-3 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) 23rd March 2010
by East Stand Martin

A home debut to forget. Unfit and well below par.

1-2 v Burnley (a) 6th February 2010
by Rob Chapman

A fair way off the pace, but looked willing. Fluffed his lines after doing the hard work in the easiest chance of the match, then limped off at half time. Not a classic debut. But not quite a Tomas Repka debut either.
