I gave him the captaincy and he has been commanding through pre-season. He had young Leigh
Mills alongside him and I think they put on an excellent display at centre half.
It was a big test for them and I think Paul is flourishing in that role.
Nicky had very little to do, only long range efforts, and wasn't tested by a clear cut
opportunity. That is why I said to them that I was delighted with the way we defended.
