After a terrific start at Burnley, with a goal in each of his first two games, on-loan Leeds Utd striker Michael Ricketts has blotted his copy-book with Clarets manager Steve Cotterill.
Cotterill was withering of Ricketts' contribution during the Clarets 1-0 defeat at the hands of Micky Adams' Coventry City. "He didn't chase enough lost causes. He is fitter than when he first arrived and by the end of the season he will chase more otherwise he will be sitting next to me on the bench." Cotterill went on the praise the efforts of the rest of the team.
That's it Steve, that's the way to handle a confidence player like Ricketts, single him out for criticism. Odds on that Ricketts will be back at Elland Road with a fortnight!
