Rob Elliot: 'Tim is a top keeper and he is the number one, but I am not here just to sit on the bench. I am here to push him.'That's what I did all pre-season and I was disappointed, to be honest with you, not to start the season.'I had a chat with the gaffer and he said, 'Tim is the number one, so you have to accept that'.'But I just said I want to keep training, keep working hard and prove that I can hopefully get into the team.'Obviously, Tim has been fantastic, as he usually is. All I can do is back it up when I get a chance to play and keep doing well in training.'Obviously, I want the club to do well and whoever plays - if it's Tim, which is more than likely - then I want him to do well.'
