Warnock hails quality of central aces Dunne and Collins


By Paul Brown

Stephen Warnock says Richard Dunne and James Collins delight in being miserly on the pitch - but thoroughly nice blokes off it.

Warnock hailed the central defensive pair as outstanding stoppers, who take the business of preventing goals very seriously.

After a frustrating night at White Hart Lane, Dunne and Collins were back to their best at Swansea with a classy clean sheet - their fourth of the season.

Despite their stingy outlook in claret and blue, Warnock insists they're two of the nicest guys you'd wish to meet off the field.

He said: "Dunnie and Ginge are a fantastic pairing. There are a few Premier League teams who'd love them as a central pairing.

"I think the manager when he came in would have identified them as probably the strongest part of the team - or one of the strongest parts of the team certainly.

"He would have been delighted he didn't have to go out and buy any new centre-backs. He inherited that experience the pair have got in their locker.

"We get on well together. We're good mates off the pitch certainly. We have a right good go at each other on the field but we know when we step off it that we can talk and that's left on the pitch and we can get on well.

"All our families get on well, which is nice too. You won't meet two nicer people than Richard and James.

"It's just a natural thing that you do get on with them. It's an easy thing."
