The 22-year-old was farmed out on loan to Leyton Orient earlier this season, but made a surprise return to the starting line-up against Blackpool a fortnight ago and scored on what was his first Championship start of the campaign.

Wagstaff has since started the last two matches, including the win at Blackburn and Saturday's last-minute defeat by Sheffield Wednesday.

He said: "I had an opportunity to go out on loan again but I told the gaffer I wanted to try to get into the team.

"Obviously that was quite hopeful thinking because I was quite a way down the pecking order at the time, but I've managed to work my way back in.

"I always believed I would get back in the side."

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
