Christian: Take It, Trev

Christian Dailly reveals that Trevor Brooking is aware that the players want him to take over - because he has told him so.

Christian, currently captain while Steve Lomas remains on the long term injury list, says: "I think they have a pretty long list of applicants to get through and hopefully they will get something sorted out.

"There is no doubt about it, to be honest, we would like Trevor to take it - everyone at the club feels that.

"The only thing is, Trevor is his own man and is going to make his own decision. It doesn't matter what kind of pressure he is put under, he will make the decision he feels is right.

"If he doesn't take it he will have a hand in making sure whoever comes in is the right man.

"I have told him what we want but it is his own decision - he knows how we feel, though."

Even Glenn Roeder has backed Trevor to do a good job if he does change his mind, and has made it clear that he would remain friends with Trevor if he succeeded him.

With four wins and a draw to his name in his role as caretaker, Christian says of Trevor's record: "He is a winner and we have won a lot of games under him so far, but it is going to be down to him.

"All we can do, whenever he is in charge, is keep on winning."
