"I had a conversation with the gaffer last season and he said he felt my best position was just behind a forward," said Danns, who has been used in that role in the last two reserve games to great effect.

"At Colchester United, I scored something like 30 goals in 75 games, starting just two of them off the striker like that. All the rest were in a 4-4-2.

"I understand where the gaffer's coming from, and if he wants to use me that way I have no problems because I just want to play."

He added: "I've been working hard on the defensive side of my game, checking back, energy and stuff. And someone like Fabrice Muamba, even though he's so young, you can learn from in the way he hunts people down and gets tackles in."
