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

Hennessey A Magnet For Stray Balls

Not quite as dangerous as a 'magnet for stray bullets' and certainly more useful, but manager Gary Johnson has said that Wayne Hennessey can't help but attract shots into his hands when he's between the sticks.

Hennessey was outstanding in our game against Nottingham Forest, and he rightly took the Man of the Match award just edging Ed Upson out of the equasion following his brace in the match.

Speaking to the Western Gazette the manager said of the on loan Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper.

'Wayne was on there and he looked like a ball magnet. The ball hit him wherever he stood and that's the sign of a class keeper.'

Johnson went further in saying that although he missed it at the time, 26 year old Hennessey did seem to pick up a rib problem during the game, but the gaffer said he was pleased he didn't see it as otherwise he'd have only been worrying, as although he has all the faith needed in Chris Dunn, Hennessey's form was just that good on the day he would've given him a massive headache had he looked like he was struggling - that said.

'He's big enough and ugly enough to shout loud enough to let me know, but if he had I would probably have ignored him and told him to carry on because he looked like a ball magnet.'

As for Hennessey himself, he told the paper that he was adoring life at Yeovil so far and obviously he couldn't be more pleased with his own display in our three one victory over Nottingham Forest.

His performances for us since joining us on loan have even earned him a recall to the Welsh national side following his omissions through injury.

'It's fantastic. Everyone has been a great credit with me, the fans have been superb and I couldn't have wished for any better.'

As for the game itself he says although he didn't feel unbeatable, he was very confident indeed that it was going to be his day, so he just enjoyed it for what it was and let it be a continuation of the form he's been in and the run that he is now on again including the international return.

He did however point out that it wasn't just about him on the day, and it hasn't just been about him when it comes to his improving form, the work rate of the players in front of him have had a huge role in helping him to look good, saying he has 'two great centre halves standing in front of me' and he just hopes the fans enjoyed the match as much as the players did.
