The City youth product looked bright throughout his 45-minute display against QPR having been sidelined since late December after suffering a broken ankle.

"That was probably the highlight for me - getting Liam Sercombe back on the pitch," Tisdale said. "How we missed him last year in the second half of the season and here he was terrific.

"He was sharp, quick to receive, quick to turn and just a natural - it was lovely to see him play like that."

Meanwhile, the City boss confirmed that the club are close to agreeing a deal to keep midfielder Matt Oakley at St James Park.

The former Leicester man, who was a regular for the Grecians last season, played for 45 minutes against Harry Redknapp's men and has spent pre-season with the club.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
