Blackburn boss Hughes: Bentley getting better and better

Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes was delighted with the performance of David Bentley in Saturday's victory at Newcastle.

Hughes said: "Central midfield is another string to his bow. He is a clever footballer who understands the game better than he did 18 months ago.

"He has grown in stature because of international recognition. He is a big player and I think he enjoys having that mantle for us."
