Warnock says he's confident that Bacuna can step up to fill in the void left by Aron Gunnarsson at the end of the season. Gunnarsson is set to leave on a free transfer this summer, having signed a deal with Qatari side Al Arabi.
After last week's win at Brighton, Warnock said: "Even Bacuna when he came on. I said to Gunnarsson after the game 'Wow. Why didn't you go off earlier?'
"Bacuna was like Pogba when he came on, and I thought thank goodness you're leaving at the end of the season and we've got him. We had a good laugh about that.
"Everybody wants to be involved. You wouldn't think we were fighting relegation really."
