James Collins is ready for Romelu Lukaku – the Premier League’s leading goalscorer wit 24 goals.

And of course his record against us is frightening having his the net 11 times in his clashes with the Irons.

Speaking to the Matchday Official programme Ginge says: ““I’ve played against loads of centre forwards in my time who are deadly in the box.

And we will have to be on our toes as every team you play against these days seems to have a striker who is capable of scoring 20-plus goals a season, so in that respect it’s no different than any other game,”

“Of course, Lukaku has got a good record against us, and we probably haven’t defended as well against him as we could have done in games gone by.

“Physically, he has got everything, he is big, strong and he can finish so it’s going to be a tough game. He’s obviously on top of his game, but I’m happy with the way I’m playing at the minute, so I’m looking forward to pitting my wits against one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

“It’s going to be a tough afternoon for all of us at the back, but I’m pretty happy with my form at the moment and I’m looking forward to a good challenge.”

    Ginge will pick him up and put him in his pocket and that’s where he will stay.

      Every team has a striker capable of scoring 20?


      We most certainly don’t for a start.
