Total: 174 starts, plus 34 as sub, 6 goals.

As captain of Peterborough's promotion-winning side of 2008-09 it came as something of a surprise when he was allowed to move to Norfolk to team up with his former boss at Wycombe, Paul Lambert.

His desire to push forward gave City an additional weapon, but he also looked rock solid in defence displaying positional awareness and excellent passing skills out of defence.
