Drury joined the npower League Two club on loan from Manchester City at the end of last week and was put straight into the team for the FA Cup third-round clash against Leicester on Saturday.

The teenage winger played 73 minutes at the King Power Stadium before being substituted.

Following the 2-0 defeat to the Foxes, Rowett said: "I thought Adam did excellent for a 19-year-old coming out and playing his first senior game in the FA Cup at Leicester.

"It was a real challenge for him and we were obviously concerned how he would handle that.

"We threw him in because we had nothing to lose and I thought he showed us what he's got. He was lively, he ran in behind and he had a bit of pace and purpose about him.

"I certainly think he'll cause a few League Two left-backs a bit of a problem."
