The central midfielder was selected in the role for the midweek League Cup clash against Crawley Town, and popped up with an impressive winner.

Coady does not expect to be picked regularly at right-back but says he is more than happy to do so when manager Walter Zenga asks him to.
The former Liverpool youngster said: "I played there the once in pre-season and as a kid I dropped in there and played along the back four a few times.
“It’s not all that different and I enjoyed playing in a different position and learning different things.It’s something I tried to take in my stride.
“Let’s face it, Dom Iorfa is a top, top players, so I’m not sure it is something that will happen too often. But if he is ever not available for any reason, and the gaffer asks me, I am more than happy to play there.”

Wolves have been busy in the transfer market since Fosun International's takeover and more additions are expected.
As new boss Walter Zenga experiments and deals with the increased competition, Coady could find himself shuffled about a little more but he has the right attitude and appears content to fulfil whichever role he is asked, so long as he is on the pitch.
Wolves have their first Championship home game of the season this weekend when they host Jaap Stam's Reading.
