Vincent is centre of attention

Vincent is centre of attention

Defender Jamie Vincent is an experienced pro when it comes to doing the unexpected. But playing at the heart of the defence and guiding younger players....no problem he says!

The 34-year-old former Derby full back is enjoying his new found responsibility, after he stepped into the fold left by regular Manny Smith, who is injured.

Talking to BBC Sport, Vincent said: 'I'm enjoying it - the gaffer's asked me to fill in with Manny Smith out injured.

'We're trying to work as a team at the back and try to give the other lads the chance to win the games for us.'

Vincent is also aware of the threat posed by Williams and Kuffour for Bristol Rovers when the two teams resume their battle from Saturday.

He added: 'They complement each other quite well.

'Kuffour looks to come in deep and looks to spin in behind, Williams feeds off that.

'They work well together. They're a handful, but we kept them to a clean sheet so hopefully we can do that again on Tuesday.'

Vincent will resume his position at centre-back on Tuesday night at the Memorial Goround (KO 7.45pm).
