At the start of the season I was concerned he would not be able to make the step up, 100% wrong. He's been our most consistent player this season and has stepped up to the level. He will make the odd mistake, he will get caught out of position and I challenge anyone to name a full back who doesn't even those who have spent their careers at the top level.

I wonder how much Julian Dicks has played in his improvement but whatever it is he is improving week by week.

Townsend could be a case for coaching rather than chucking money at problems , sometimes easy to forget that.

Not yet. It looked quite serious (knee injury). Fingers crossed he's available soon as Gibbs appears to have retired and Townsend has been excellent - 110% from him every game and he's an intelligent player.

He's been one of if not our most consistent player this season. We struggled when he went off (whilst Phillips sat in and defended he offered no width) hope its only a knock
