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."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
