It appears he might get his wish after arriving on Monday morning to find that Preston North End's staff had produced a 'keeper kit for him.

The midfielder produced an impressive display between the sticks in the 1-1 draw at Portman Road on Saturday, stepping up for the final 20 minutes after Chris Maxwell's red card.

An acrobatic save from Danny Rowe in the closing stages completed a memorable day for the 34-year-old who had come on as a second-half substitute and scored with his first touch.

He will return to normal duties at Bristol City this Saturday with Declan Rudd expected to deputise for Maxwell who serves a one-game ban.
