Wes Brown, who has struggled to get in to the team thanks to a big falling out with the manager on the pre-season tour, is eager to make the most of every opportunity he has to play.

He’s 31-years-old and his contract expires next summer. When his last contract was negotiated he was our first choice right-back, yet the club failed to offer Wes what he believed he deserved. At one stage, the talks stopped all together, with the club refusing to up their offer and Wes refusing to sign. Alls well that ends well though, with the two parties eventually coming to an agreement, but rumours are rife we won’t see such an amicable resolution if Wes is seeking a long term contract.

“I am not getting any younger now and every game I do play I just try to enjoy and do my best for the team,” he said. “You have to give everything for the cause. That is the most important thing for me. It has been great to be back playing some games. I am really enjoying things at the moment. I am training hard and hopefully I will have more opportunities in the coming months.”
