The midfielder has only managed 15 minutes of first-team action for Lee Clark's side since arriving at the start of October on a short-term deal, stepping off the bench against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road last week.

But Diop has now bagged in three of Blues' last four Development fixtures.

Barnsley took the lead in the fixture at Wast Hills only for Diop to equalise from close range in first-half injury time, adding to his recent strikes against Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.

Young defender Will Packwood captained Blues and was joined in the starting XI by the likes of Mitch Hancox, Ben Gordon, Morgaro Gomis and Nathan Redmond.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
