Nathan Redmond can be Norwich City's Championship play-off wildcard.
The England Under-21s starlet overtook Wes Hoolahan at the top of the City assists chart with a brace in carving out goals for Graham Dorrans and Bradley Johnson as well as rifling his fourth of the season in the 4-2 final day win over Fulham. Alex Neil is in no doubt Redmond is a potential match-winner as the Scot steps up his planning for Saturday's semi-final first leg trip to Ipswich.
'Nathan has got a lot of tools in terms of being a top player. He can do things many other players cannot do,' said Neil. 'The only thing he is lacking is that wee bit of experience and doing it on a consistent basis. If we can get to that stage with Nathan then everybody knows what a talent he is.'
Redmond promises there is more to come.
'I think I've had a good season and I've contributed well. I've worked hard for the team and the season's not done yet,' he said.
'I've always prided myself on my assists and not so much goals. You can't really beat the feeling of getting goals, but ever since I've been playing I've just always tried to pride myself on getting those assists. I think I could've contributed with a couple more goals and it's the one thing I'm a bit disappointed in myself with.
'Like any young player, it's been up and down. I've had flashes where I've been good. The start of the season was a little bit tough for me, just in terms of trying out different formations. Sometimes I was playing up front, sometimes I found myself in midfield in a three, and sometimes I found myself in the hole. So it was a bit all over the place.

But once I got my strong run over on the right-hand side, which is what I asked of Neil Adams at the start when he came in, I was getting assists and I was performing well. I took a little dip and the gaffer here now acknowledged that. He brought me out of it a little bit, but I'm coming back into it now.'
