The summer signing is perhaps not flavour of the month with the south coast club's faithful, given he turned his back on them to join Norwich in the summer.

But City fans haven't seen much return from their £8m investment from Tottenham Hotspur.

Pritchard has started just one Championship game – the 3-1 home defeat of Rotherham when he formed a good partnership with Wes Hoolahan in a performance that had City fans on their toes at times.

He started the EFL Cup defeat at Leeds on Tuesday night, scoring City's opening goal – although his awful attempt in the penalty shootout is one he will be eager to forget in a hurry.

That defeat followed a disappointing home loss to Preston and while City are still well placed in the upper regions of the table, there is undoubtedly some doom and gloom among supporters.

There's no doubt Pritchard is a box of tricks – but will Alex Neil start him?
