Collins sounds Benteke warning

J CollinsOur former Villa defender James Collins has warned the Irons to Beware Benteke.

As the Hammers prepare for their weekend clash at Villa Park Collins who will be at the heart of the ‘Benteke battle’ declare: ” It’s going to be tough, because Bentake is bang in form at the moment.”

Speaking to the official site he added: “If we keep a clean sheet on Saturday it would be the first time we’ve kept three on the bounce this season.

“Tim Sherwood seems to have come in and got them going. The FA Cup has given them confidence and when I was playing there it was always a great atmosphere to play in. Not quite like Upton Park, but loud and they love their football so I’m sure me and Stewie will get a bit of stick.

“We got a good result when we went there last year and if we play like we know we can I’m sure we can get three points.”
