'If It's Football, It's Vital'

O'Neill Rests Chris Sutton

Martin O'Neill says he is 'very pleased' with striker Chris Sutton who bagged his first (of many we hope) goal against Everton last weekend.

O'Neill said of the 33-year-old former Celtic, Blackburn and Chelsea striker:

'I'm obviously very pleased with Sutton. I've given him a few days off because he's worked hard.'

'He's a good character and he's very conscientious. He's still enjoying it and at this stage of his career he's got to enjoy it, otherwise it would be a real waste of time. I know it's a short-term contract to the end of the season and he was absolutely adamant that if things didn't work out, he would just pack the bags and head off. But I always felt he definitely had a chance and he's doing well. He's giving it everything he's got.'

'He was out on his feet again at Everton and I am concerned in the last minutes of matches, where he's given everything and then he gets so tired that the muscles seize-up on him.'
