Should Rob be given the Green light?

I'm delighted to say that at Loftus Road we have always had great goalkeepers but at the moment we have two! Julio Cesar is having a great season but his 'dead leg' on Saturday meant Rob Green was called into action and what action it was!
A world class save in the dying minutes meant we took all three points in a vital win down at the South Coast. 
So the question has to be asked; has the former Hammer earned a starting place or is it back to being a bench warmer against Sunderland?
Here is my thinking;
A lot of Rob's game is based on confidence and it must be sky high after the win at Saint Mary's!
He can't be blamed forever for the Swansea defeat; it's over so let's move on.
The way he has carried himself since he lost his place has to be admired; most would have demanded a transfer or gone to the press. Rob has worked hard and it showed in his last game with his fine effort! 
Cesar can't seem to catch the ball where as the England stopper can. The Brazilian would rather punch than catch a cross, that's a slight worry. 
I really can't see a good reason why he shouldn't be given the chance!
The away fans gave him a huge cheer on Saturday when he came on and that's exactly what the home crowd need to do against Sunderland. 
This is where Harry earns his money; it's a tough choice but I'd personally give 'Robbo' the nod.
