Doncaster Keepers Views

Ben Smith:

'Having played in every game, though I was on the bench in the first round game at Huddersfield, I would like to think that the manager would have picked me for the final had I been fit.

'Obviously I would have loved to have been playing on Sunday. But I am just starting out and hopefully there will be other big games in the future,

'I was a bit disappointed to lose my place in the team when Neil came back because I felt that I had been getting better every game.

'But Neil has played at the top level and he is a very experienced keeper and I could understand the club's thinking in wanting to bring him here when the opportunity arose.

'As was the case when he was here before Christmas, I have been learning a lot from Neil both in games and in training.'

'It is a final and I think that it will be a tight game. Both sides will be up for it but I think that we will have the edge.'


Regarding his injury, the young 'keeper said: 'It was a problem that I had had since earlier in the season and although it didn't reallly bother me in games, with Neil being here it was felt that it was a good time to get it sorted out.

'The operation went okay and the rehab has been going well and I hope to be back playing in about three weeks' time.'


Neil Sullivan has yet to win at the Millennium. The on-loan 'keeper played for Spurs in the League Cup final when they lost to Blackburn. The former Scotlan international featured for Leeds in last season play-off final. 'Just because I`ve lost there a couple of times, it does not mean I will lose again."
