Having had a stormer of season so far, it`s no surprise to see the Ginger Warrior Nicky Butt asking for a contract extension. The Gorton Gripper hopes to emulate Sam`s former charge Gary Speed and go on well into his 30s. Butt said:

‘When a new manager comes in you have to prove yourself no matter what age you are and no matter how much you’ve done. I think I have done that but hopefully the team will improve in the coming weeks because that’s the most important thing. I want to stay here but that (contract talks) is ongoing at the moment and if that happens that’s all well and good.’
