Bennett Not Beaten

Midfielder muses magical goals but is miffed at missed opportunities.

Kyle Bennett said that despite him seizing his opportunity against Sheffield United, he was left ultimately disappointed with the 3-2 defeat.

The flying winger scored two stunning strikes, but it wasn’t enough to stop Doncaster sliding to their fourth defeat in five games.

“I’ve scored two goals and getting back in the team is key for me on a personal level but we want to win every game whether I’m in or not,” said Bennett.

“Three points is what you look for in a game and we've not come away with that.

“I think we played excellently today and deserved a lot more out of the game and think we were a bit hard done by to be honest.”

Often cited as a confidence player, Bennett was full of energy as he struck two thunderbolts in vain.

“Copps played me the ball out wide and I took a touch and hit it. It’s something I’ve worked on in training and I don’t think we do enough of it and the gaffer's told me to get my shots off and that’s what I’ve done,” the 24 year old said of his first goal.

“It was the first thing in my mind and thankfully I’ve caught it well.

“It makes you feel like you can do anything in the game though it’s not much consolation because overall we've come away with nothing.

“It was there for everyone to see that we were the better team and passed the ball really well through the phases but they’ve got the critical goals which have killed us off.

“Promotion through the play-offs was our aim at the start of the season and we're never going to give up until it’s mathematically impossible.”
