The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

MARK Lit­tle is ea­ger to cap­i­talise on a first-team open­ing at Bris­tol City af­ter see­ing El­liott Ben­nett join Black­burn Rovers on a per­ma­nent deal.

The 27-year-old full-back, who joined the Robins from Peter­bor­ough in 2014, spent the early part of the sea­son re­cov­er­ing from a dis­lo­cated shoul­der, mak­ing just four Cham­pi­onship starts since.

“Be­fore this week­end there was al­ways a fit­ter, bet­ter op­tion and now by cir­cum­stance it looks like I might get my chance,” Lit­tle said.

“I al­ways want to help the team when I can and now El­liott’s gone, a slot is up for grabs and hope­fully I’ll get a chance to show the boss I’m ca­pa­ble to do the shift.”
